FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce to Hold
Annual Legislative Preview Luncheon
The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its 2013 Legislative Preview Luncheon to be held
on Friday, January 18 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Terry’s Banquets and Catering. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. with the program set for 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The cost, which includes lunch, is $19 for Chamber members and $25 for the general public. Reservations may be made at The Chamber’s website (www.ChamberBloomington.org) or by calling 812-336-6381. The uncheon is an interactive discussion between legislators and the business community regarding business issues anticipated to arise during the upcoming legislative session.
For the benefit of our members and those that represent them, we feel that it is important to provide opportunities to connect business leaders with elected officials to share ideas and create better understanding of the issues that impact business and job creation. Each year we are fortunate to have active participation from local legislators. This year’s legislators include: Sen. Mark Stoops (District 40), Rep. Bob Heaton (District 46), Rep. Eric Koch (District 65), Rep. Peggy Mayfield (District 60), Rep. Matt Pierce (Dist. 61), and Rep. Matt Ubelhor (Dist. 62).
The Chamber will also present its full 2013 Indiana Legislative Agenda at the event. The Legislative Agenda, developed by the Chambers Legislative Council and approved by the organization’s board of directors, identifies key issues that The Chamber will closely monitor and advocate for during the 2013 legislative session. The issues were selected based on their overall local relevance and impact; the organization’s ability to affect outcomes and also on feedback received via the annual Business Climate and Legislative Survey which was sent out to The Chamber’s full membership in early fall.
The Chamber is pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to connect with new and returning legislators and is looking forward to continuing efforts to bring members of the business community, elected leaders and the public together as we work toward making Indiana an even better place to live, work, and do business.
