Pace Cetters was established in 1969 by Linda Calhoun of Peachtree Center Management with sponsorship from John Portman, under its original name, Peachtree Center Pace Cetters, as a way for the businesswomen of Peachtree Center to get together and become better acquainted. Membership was limited to women in mostly secretarial and administrative roles, working in Peachtree Center. As Pace Cetters grew, its membership was expanded to professional women beyond the administrative field and outside the geographic boundary of Peachtree Center, thus the name was shortened to Pace Cetters. Our member ages range from mid-twenties to mid-seventies, providing an exciting environment of experience and new ideas. Many strong relationships are formed with many members not only finding a mentor, but also becoming a mentor themselves.
