“Swinging for Scholarships” Spring Golf Tournament
To kick off the spring season, GFIA members gather to play in the “Swinging for Scholarships” Spring Golf Tournament. This event benefits our Education Foundation, which provides scholarships to deserving students in the industry, funds educational seminars and offers various other services to GFIA members.
Considered to be the Georgia Food Industry Association’s premier event, the annual convention hosts over 1,000 retailers, wholesalers, suppliers and their families each July. The GFIA convention is known nationally as one of the best events in the food industry. Attendees are treated to a week of business networking activities, educational seminars and fun in a casual environment. The GFIA trade show is also a huge draw, allowing suppliers to show off the latest and greatest products their company has to offer!
Board of Directors’ Fall Golf Classic
Hosted by the GFIA Board of Directors, the Fall Golf Classic is a member favorite! Proceeds help to fund the legislative efforts of the association. GFIA’s legislative agenda is our top priority and this tournament gives us the means to represent our members’ interests before regulatory and state agencies.
