The Georgia Agribusiness Council's annual Legislative Breakfast, being held on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. at the Georgia Railroad Freight Depot, is a chance for members to "meet and greet" with their state legislators and get an update on the issues impacting the state in regards to agriculture and other ag-related issues. Governor Nathan Deal, Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle, House Speaker David Ralston, Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black and a host of other elected state leaders have all been past speakers. This event takes place each February when the Georgia General Assembly is in session.
The annual meeting is a more personal gathering of members where we present the current events pertaining to ag, and more specifically, how we are addressing those issues. This sit-down dinner is an opportunity for members to connect with other members, become educated on the issues, and to see how they can get more involved. With a key-note speaker and a cocktail reception beforehand, this is an event you'd hate to miss.
This year's even will take place will take place on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, at The American Hotel, a DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Atlanta. We will have a reception starting at 6:00 p.m. with supper being served at 6:30 p.m. The American Hotel is also the host hotel.
