2016 Effingham Day at the Capitol

The 2016 Effingham Day at the Capitol will be held Monday, January 25th and Tuesday, January 26th.  The Georgia Railroad Depot in Atlanta has been reserved for a reception Monday evening from 4:30 – 7:00 with state legislators, department heads and guests being invited to join us.   Tuesday morning we will have our group photo taken with Governor Nathan Deal following a group meeting in the Capitol.  Please plan to meet inside the Capitol on Tuesday morning at 8:30am.  Our room assignment is Room 403.  We are inviting key legislators and constitutional officers to drop in and say hello to our group and give a very brief update from their perspective.  We’ll be serving coffee and sausage biscuits for everyone.

Total costs for the reception and buses to and from the Reception will be $125 per person and is payable to the Effingham Chamber by January 15, 2016. Round trip transportation from the hotel to The Georgia Railroad Depot will be provided and is included in the cost.
