Educational Exchange

This annual event hosted by the Georgia Association of Community Service Boards (GACSB) is an opportunity specifically created for Community Service Board (CSB) board members, leadership/staff and select vendors. The event is closed to the general public. The event brings a common perspective to our Public Safety Net of professionals and advocates providing Mental Health, Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities, and Addictive Diseases services across Georgia. Applications are submitted for CEU and CME credits from NASW, LPCA, GAMFT, GACA, GPA and GPPA. 

Schedule at a Glance 


The challenges of 2020 altered the way people work and do business, so the way in which we partner with our sponsors needed to change as well. We are working with an ever-changing landscape and many unknowns of the future of healthcare, but we are embracing the changes and are taking thoughtful steps to enhance our opportunities with vendors to help our member organizations increase access to high quality care for individuals and families living with a mental illness, substance use disorder and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities. Starting now the GACSB is pleased to announce a whole new world for our partners with our new Annual Business Partnership Benefits Packages.

GACSB is moving away from just a conference sponsorship package and looking to increase sponsorship opportunities in new and creative virtual ways while at the same time offering experiences to support the Educational Exchange now and in the future, whether it is hosted virtually or in person. Having this is mind, new opportunities to partner with GACSB are being offered that are a distinct change from years prior.

GACSB is now offering the following annual partnership levels for purchase by our supporters:

  • PREMIER CHAMPION PARTNER (an exclusive benefit)

For our current supporters you will find our normal conference sponsorship opportunities PLUS a whole lot more! For our new supporters, you will find amazing opportunities for support of Georgia’s Public Safety Net provider network and the Georgia Association of Community Service Boards.

You are cordially invited to the 24th Annual Educational Exchange Leadership Conference, scheduled for November 6-8, 2022 at beautiful Legacy Lodge & Conference Center, Lake Lanier Islands, Georgia. The Educational Exchange brings a common perspective to professionals and advocates providing Mental Health, Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and Addictive Diseases services in Georgia.

Please consider how your organization can help equip our members to be even more efficient and successful in an increasingly competitive market.
