Founded in 1785, University of Georgia is one of the oldest colleges in the country, and was the first state-chartered university in the United States. We are proud to be hosting the 2019 NACUFS Southern Regional Conference and are excited to give you a small taste of what Athens has to offer. Steeped in the southern traditions of rock-n-roll, sweet tea, and hospitality, Athens continues to be a driving force in the music scene. Launching such greats as REM, Widespread Panic & theB-52’s to stardom, it is quickly making its mark on the food scene. Our opening key note speaker, celebrity chef Hugh Acheson, has opened two restaurants in Athens--5 & 10 and The National. We are working on a great educational line up and some fun events; not to mention a pre-conference golf outing at our award winning golf course. On behalf of the entire task force, we invite you to come join us for a few days of porch sittin’ and southern hospitality.
Hope to see Y’all soon!
Danielle J. Bouton, Conference Chair
