GAC EVENTS

Harvest Celebration

GAC’s Harvest Celebration provides an opportunity for leaders from every commodity group and service sector to gather in a festive salute to Georgia’s diverse agribusiness industry. The evening’s activities include a silent auction and a unique Field of Dreams reception that precede dinner and entertainment. All proceeds support the Council’s program of work, which includes legislative monitoring, agricultural education, economic services, agribusiness development, public outreach initiatives and coalition building within the agricultural community. This year's Harvest Celebration was held on November 17, 2017 at the Cobb Galleria Centre and it was another great success with 800 tickets sold and country music powerhouse, Restless Heart, providing the entertainment! 

Harvest Celebration is key to the advocacy efforts of the Council, and we are very grateful for the support provided by our members and industry friends. We hope to have you as our guest for a first-class, engaging evening that you will want to share with friends, family and co-workers.

Legislative Breakfast

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.

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.
