ZombieSoldier, we chose Metro Atlanta for the chapter name strategically to try to include as many people as possible. The area that is covered in Metro Atlanta is vast and includes Atlanta, Marietta, Alpharetta, Newnan, and I think even Hall County, and many, many more cities and counties. With that in mind, since the chapter can branch out to a 2 hour radius, we were hoping that that helps us extend 2 hours from the furthest parts of "Metro Atlanta" to cover as many areas as possible.
We also realize that some people will still not be within a 2 hour radius of the furthest point of Metro Atlanta and that there aren't enough members (yet) in those areas not covered to create a separate chapter. We absolutely welcome all of the Georgia members into this chapter and don't want to lose anyone! We also plan to schedule events that stretch all over Georgia, not just the metro area, to try to allow for more members to participate without having to trek out to Atlanta. Also, if our recruitment efforts work, we will hopefully have more folks from your region and maybe some day you can form yet another Georgia chapter.
I want you to feel included!
President, ZSC-016, Metro Atlanta
