Please join us for our Seventh Annual Asian American Legislative Breakfast and Lobby Day on Thursday, February 22nd in the Georgia State Capitol located in downtown Atlanta.

Our event draws the largest number of Asian American business and community leaders to the Georgia Capitol each year, typically bringing together over 300 guests.

This year's event will start with coffee and refreshments as well as a formal program at the Floyd Room at the James H Floyd Building from 7:30AM - 9:00AM, followed by an opportunity to lobby elected officials on important issues in the legislature. Guests will be invited to join us back in the Floyd Room for a lunch and keynote address (TBD).
