Georgia Main Street Training Calendar
Through training opportunities we learn to advance ourselves as well as our community, through an exchange in ideas and by creating a universal language of common themes and concepts which we can build upon. Whether you are looking for beginner courses that explain the basics of the Main Street Program or more intensive economic development trainings, we strive to share opportunities that make downtown development practices more applicable and successful in your own city. Please take a look at the calendar below and note upcoming opportunities throughout the state and nationally.
