Legislative/Economic Forum & Reception

The annual Legislative/Economic Forum and Reception, hosted by the GBA Board of Directors, the Public Affairs Committee and the BankPAC Board of Directors, is held in honor of members of the Georgia General Assembly as GBA's way of showing the industry's appreciation for these elected official's commitment to our state. At the Forum, economic, political and industry experts along with Georgia elected officials will bring you up to date on the latest issues the banking industry will face in the 2020 legislative session.

As of Dec. 18, 2019, GBA's room block at the W Atlanta Midtown is sold out and the hotel is unable to offer any more rooms for the night of Jan. 15. We recommend that you contact the W to be placed on a waitlist in case of a cancellation.

Meanwhile, we have conducted a search for nearby alternate hotels and the Marriott Springhill Suites Atlanta Buckhead has availability as of this date. Note that this hotel is in Buckhead, not Midtown or downtown, but overall availability is slim due to the Atlanta Gift Market.
