For 45 years, the GAC Harvest Celebration has served as an opportunity for our members to gather, network, support the GAC, and celebrate the many accomplishments of Georgia’s largest industry. It has also served as an opportunity for us to give thanks to our many supporters and volunteers. This year, COVID-19 has made every aspect of our personal and professional lives more challenging and unpredictable. With this public health crisis and the interest of our members in mind, The Georgia Agribusiness Council Foundation is announcing a format change for the 2020 Harvest Celebration.
In order to continue our proud tradition of gathering together to celebrate agriculture, this year’s Harvest Celebration will transition to an outdoor event to be held on the same date, November 20th, at the Meadows Gun Club in Forsyth, GA. We will be hosting an exciting Georgia Grown lunch where attendees can enjoy the family atmosphere that the Harvest Celebration is known for, while still gathering in a socially distanced setting.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in their choice of several activities throughout the day as the GAC Foundation will be hosting a sporting clays tournament, a holiday cookie decorating class, and a hands-on holiday floral arrangement demonstration that is sure to be fun for everyone in attendance. As always, our silent auction and Field of Dreams fundraisers will provide an opportunity to take home great items while supporting scholarships, ag education, and policy studies. This will be an exciting day for your entire family and agribusiness.
We are very proud of how the Council and our membership has responded to this crisis and shown leadership throughout the state. We are diligently working to ensure that the needs of our membership are met and will continue to do so on a daily basis. We hope that you will still be able to join us in supporting the Foundation through this new format as we do our best to adapt to social distancing and health requirements.
Join us as we celebrate and support the GAC Foundation through
fellowship and sporting clays at the Harvest Celebration Clay Shoot!

The Georgia Agribusiness Council's annual Legislative Breakfast, was held on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 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 Brian Kemp, Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, House Speaker David Ralston, 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 4, 2020, at The American Hotel, a DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Atlanta. The speaker was Georgia Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan. Keep a watch out for 2021 event information!
