Community invited to stay informed at Eggs & Issues Breakfast Series

MILLEDGEVILLE — Local city and county officials, educators, parents and citizens are invited to meet with Baldwin County School Superintendent Geneva Braziel to get updated on the school system’s successes and challenges during the kickoff to Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce’s Eggs & Issues Breakfast Series presented by Central Georgia Technical College.

“The series is something many Chambers do. We have held it before in the past. It’s typically an opportunity for us to get an update from elected officials at the state and federal levels, but we expanded the series to present education,” local Chamber CEO April Bragg said. “Then we will be taking an objective look at a number of issues affecting our community, from healthcare to the initiatives of Partners for Progress and city, county and other elected officials will be included in the rotation as well.”

Registration for the Eggs & Issues Breakfast Series is slated to begin at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30 at the Original Crockett’s Restaurant. The initial series is co-sponsored by Lyn Chandler and Windstream Communications. Tickets are $10 each, or $75 for a table of eight. The cost of tickets includes a breakfast buffet prior to the 8 a.m. presentation.

“For the format, we will have a welcome invocation followed by a 40-minute presentation by the speaker followed by a moderated question and answer session,” Bragg said. “The series will feature speakers on a variety of topics affecting our community at different host locations. This first session will also provide a forum to address the impact on our business community and identify partnership opportunities.

The second Eggs & Breakfast Series will focus on the state of health care in Baldwin County featuring Oconee Regional Medical Center CEO Jean Aycock, scheduled be held on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

“We will have the Eggs & Issues program every four to six weeks from now until May. The one in May will be with state and federal legislators hosted by Central Georgia Technical College in their new facility,” Bragg said. “This series is an opportunity to take the content we were getting for the Voices for Progress retreat and it allows us to invite it in bite-size pieces and present it to the wider community. We want to make the content more accessible to people and give people a variety of opportunities to engage and participate.”

For more information about the series, or to register in advance, call the Chamber office at (478) 453-9311 or visit www.milledgevillega.com.
