IT'S A FACT

GEAC’s Near Demise
In 1977, GEAC almost folded. Unable to resolve GEAC’s relationship with CASE, the board considered disbanding the organization. But a survey of members showed strong support for continuing GEAC with conferences targeted at meeting the needs of colleges and universities in Georgia. Talk of abolishing the organization was dropped and GEAC has grown and thrived.
