Members of the Decatur-Morgan County Hospitality Association are actively involved in the community, providing volunteer and financial support for many of the community’s events and non-profit organizations. In addition to participating in projects that encourage visitors to come and stay in Decatur, the association has also helped promote the city and county to potential residents moving to the area because of BRAC.
