The day will begin at 8:00 a.m. with complimentary continental breakfast in Central Presbyterian Church’s Tull Hall, located across Washington Street from the Capitol. During breakfast, there will be a presentation on the most critical conservation bills in the General Assembly. Assistance will be available for identifying and locating your representative and senator.
Following the informational session, the group will go to the Capitol around 9:30 a.m. for a group photograph to be taken at the bottom of the Capitol North stairs. After the group photograph you will have time to call upon your legislators. You may want to make an appointment in advance to speak with your legislator on Feb 18th. (To find out who your legislators are, go to: http://openstates.org/ga. Lunch will be on your own at either the “Sloppy” Floyd Building across Piedmont Avenue/MLK Drive or in the Capitol snack bar. Either before or after lunch, you will report to a debriefing room where you can share details of your visit.
Make sure you bring your photo identification to get through security at the Capitol!
