The Georgia Chamber in October held its third annual Rural Prosperity Summit in Tifton, where more than 500 Georgians gathered to discuss some of the key issues facing the rural parts of the state.
From the opioid crisis to healthcare, the arts to the role of military bases, the chamber along with a host of legislators and other state officials shared ideas and gave updates on many of the initiatives taking place all across Georgia. Gov. Brian Kemp’s emphasis on the rural reaches of the state helped propel him into the Governor’s Mansion in 2018, and he has certainly kept elected officials and business leaders alike focused on that topic.
