To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to express congratulations to Chick-fil-A corporate attorney Matthew R. Almand of Fayetteville on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the State Personnel Board.
All Georgians will benefit from Mr. Almand’s service on the board, which provides policy direction for state personnel administration, adopting rules to serve as a framework for legal compliance and effective talent management across the state.
Mr. Almand’s acceptance of this new position demonstrates his commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
