The Chamber's Elect Connect
The Chamber's Elect Connect is an opportunity for local business owners and professionals to interact and connect with City of Bloomington and Monroe County elected officials. In 2019 The Chamber's Elect Connect was a Bloomington city council candidate forum, held at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.
In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Elect Connect took the form of an online candidate guide for elections at the local, state and federal levels. The nonpartisan guide included questionnaires with business-related questions and video interviews with candidates.
Elect Connect provides the opportunity to engage with elected officials on a variety of topics of importance to local business. These can include affordable housing, infrastructure and roads, zoning, business development and the future of Bloomington and Monroe County.
