Transform Westside Summit at The Gathering Spot, June 2

Date: June 02, 2017

Time: 7:15 am

The Transform Westside Summit is held on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. Meetings begin promptly at 7:15 a.m. with complimentary breakfast, provided by Summit sponsor Chick-fil-A, and morning devotion.*

Please feel free to invite additional partners to attend this event.

Many in our community are driven by their spiritual faith to participate in the Westside revitalization effort. The time at the beginning of our meetings is an opportunity to share various inspirational reflections. While the speakers may articulate their personal faith, it is meant to be inclusive, inspiring and meaningful. All are welcome.

The Westside Future Fund is a not-for-profit organization of Atlanta community leaders who believe in the future of the Historic Westside and are committed to helping the area revitalize and grow. We do this by connecting resources with needs; convening the right people around the table; collaborating on strategies; and coordinating all of these efforts, which are vital to the Westside’s long-term success.

We want all of Atlanta to thrive, and the support of efforts on the Westside offers a tremendous opportunity for current and future Westside residents to prosper; for businesses to build and employees to live; and for Atlanta to honor its history and bring even more vitality to the heart of the city.

Umbrella Insurance: The Safety Net You Need

The realm of insurance is just about the most difficult maze to get through. Each and every day it seems the financial and insurance industries are changing. What is not changing, however, is the fact that lawsuits fill up the courts more and more – lawsuits that award cash to third parties even if you don’t happen to have that cash saved. More and more, the words “umbrella insurance” are coming up in both conversation and in advertising on TV. Before getting lost in another “maze,” it is best to look into exactly what umbrella insurance means and why you should consider it for yourself.
