How the Piedmont Heights Alliance Started

The Greater Piedmont Heights Business Alliance was established as a committee of the Piedmont Heights Civic Association in 2014. 

  • With the leadership of Bill Seay, the committee gained traction and opened membership to businesses in Piedmont Heights. At it's peak,  GPHBA was over 50 business members strong. 
  • Over the next few years, volunteer energy waned and the committee needed to find a new direction and leadership. 
  • At the May 2018 GPHBA meeting at Mix with the Atlanta BeltLine and Jennifer Ohme of idealDESIGN,inc and community development consultant with Old Fourth Ward Business Association, spoke of the impact and necessity to organize before Piedmont Heights becomes the next BeltLine neighborhood. 
  • End of 2018, the current board for the GPHBA agreed to hire idealDESIGN,inc. 

February of 2019 began a three discovery month process with business stakeholders to identify leaders the interest in transforming the business alliance committee of the Piedmont Heights Civic Association to a stand alone 501 c(6) organization.  

May of 2019 kicked off the development phase of the PiHi Alliance with a volunteer board of directors stepping up to guide and grow the business community. 

September 2019 the Piedmont Heights Alliance launches as the Piedmont Heights Alliance Inc. with 501c(6) paperwork submitted, bank account established and online membership.
