Weather causes annual chamber trip to the Capitol to be canceled



Local chamber of commerce leaders have canceled their annual visit to the state Capitol in Atlanta Tuesday due to the looming winter storm.

Greater Augusta Day, a trip organized jointly by the Augusta Metro, Columbia County and Burke County chambers of commerce, was canceled as weather forecasters are predicting icy conditions to begin Tuesday from the winter storm, said Sue Parr, president of the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce.

The event gives local officials and businesspeople the chance to meet with state leaders.

Parr said she’s looking to possibly re-schedule the trip later this year.
