On October 5, the Savannah Chamber, along with The Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the Georgia Ports Authority, Georgia Power, Gulfstream, The Metro Atlanta Chamber, The Savannah Economic Development Authority, and The Tourism Leadership Council, hosted the Georgia Legislative Women’s Caucus for dinner at the Pirates House. This was the first time the Legislative Women’s Caucus had met since 2019, and they chose to meet in Savannah.
Founded in 1990, the formal bipartisan, bicameral Georgia Legislative Women’s Caucus brings women members of the Georgia House and Senate together to work on issues important to Georgian women and families. State Representative Edna Jackson was instrumental in planning the Caucus meeting and arranging tours of Gulfstream, the Georgia Ports Authority, the Chatham Area Transit Authority, and Savannah State University, among others.
The meeting was a great opportunity for the Legislative Women’s Caucus to learn more about the Savannah region and its many assets, including its strong economy, vibrant culture, and commitment to education and innovation. The Caucus members were also impressed with the region’s natural beauty and many outdoor recreation opportunities.
The Savannah Chamber is grateful to the Georgia Legislative Women’s Caucus for choosing to meet in Savannah. We hope that the Caucus members’ visit will strengthen the relationship between the Savannah region and the Georgia Legislature.
