Join APSCU in Atlanta for our inaugural Georgia Lobby Day on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. The day at the State Capitol will begin at 10 AM and include a luncheon with legislative speakers. Making contact with policy makers is the best way to spread the positive message that private sector colleges and universities and more importantly, their students, have to share. It is our goal to have a sizable contingent of administrators, students, faculty and employers at the Capitol to show the strength and diversity of our sector.

Special thanks to Pearson for providing generous support to make this day possible.
