Agriculture Committee

The Agriculture Committee provides information to Georgia bankers concerning community, economic and agribusiness development with an overall emphasis on more jobs for our state, particularly for non-urban communities.

This committee participates in the planning of an annual conference usually held in the Spring and in other seminars throughout the year.

The committee also provides input on legislative and regulatory issues of importance to Georgia's agribusiness community.
