The Georgia Agribusiness Council's annual Legislative Breakfast, was held on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 7:30 a.m. at the Georgia Railroad Freight Depot, which was 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 usually takes place at the beginning of the year 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 event was held on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at The American Hotel, a DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Atlanta. The speaker was Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr. Keep a watch out for 2020 event information!
