A recognized event on the state's political calendar since 1958, the Biennial Institute for Georgia Legislators provides legislators with valuable time for learning, networking and exploring state issues prior to the upcoming session of the General Assembly.

Sessions conducted by veteran lawmakers and staff, agency administrators and subject matter experts lead legislators through a wide variety of current topics.

New and veteran legislators count on the Biennial Institute to provide information and training that will help them make better-informed decisions for Georgia.
