What is the Bird Supper
The Bird Supper, sponsored by the Lowndes County Board of Commissioners and the City of Valdosta, allows hundreds of local business, professional and government personnel to travel to Atlanta each February to meet with state officials for a dinner of quail and important conversations. Since the 1950s, the traditional event has provided a venue for local professionals to be a catalyst for impacting legislative issues by keeping Valdosta and Lowndes County in the minds of the state officials during a half-way point of the legislative session.
Who Should Attend
Professionals from all areas affected by legislative decisions should participate in this event, such as those from the business, education, development and construction, health care, industry, agriculture, and government, etc. The event allows local leaders to meet with and become familiar with their legislators and state officials, as both sides benefit from understanding the needs and philosophies of the other and from listening, which ultimately leads to better informed decision making.
