Former U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss (BBA '66) will be the featured speaker at the Terry Third Thursday breakfast speaker series on July 16 at the Terry Executive Education Center in Buckhead.

Chambliss, who will speak on “Leadership Lessons from Capitol Hill,” served in the U.S. Senate for two terms and in the U.S. House of Representatives for four terms. Georgia Trend, which regularly named him one of its Most Influential Georgians, called him "a highly visible and well-respected presence in Washington," and noted that he earned "a reputation as an affable but straight-talking lawmaker."

Terry Third Thursday is a monthly event for the Atlanta business community. Registration is required for the $30 event. Visit terry.uga.edu/ttt to register and for directions.

Chambliss was first elected to Congress to represent Georgia's 8th District in 1994. Throughout his legislative career, he has been recognized numerous times by the public and private sectors for his work on agriculture, defense, budget and national security issues.

During his tenure in the Senate, he served as a member of the Armed Services Committee; the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; the Rules Committee; and his leadership and experience on homeland security and intelligence matters earned him an appointment to the Senate Committee on Intelligence, where he served as vice chairman from 2011 to 2014. 

The Terry Third Thursday series is sponsored by The Bank of North Georgia, the Atlanta Business Chronicle and WABE-FM.
