Legislative Breakfast

The Georgia Agribusiness Council's annual Legislative Breakfast, was held on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 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 Tyler Harper, Chairman Russ Goodman & Robert Dickey, 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.  

Keep your eye out for 2024 Information, but SAVE THE DATE Wednesday, February 7, 2023.

Annual Meeting

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 January 31, 2023 at the Georgia Aquarium! The Farmer of the Year award was presented at this year’s event for the first time and our keynote speaker was Retired U.S. Senator, Saxby Chambliss. 

Keep watching for more details on the upcoming 2024 meeting but SAVE THE DATE Tuesday, February 6, 2023.
