Legislative forum set for October

September 28, 2018

The Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry, in cooperation with local chambers of commerce across the state, is preparing for its annual legislative forums. In total, State Chamber staff will visit 30 communities this fall.

In Beatrice, this forum will be held on Tuesday, Oct.9 at The Black Crow, 405 Court Street, beginning at 11:30 am and lasting until 1 pm. Call 402-223-2338 for more information.

This year’s State Chamber presentation will examine at key business-related bills in the 2018 session of the Nebraska Legislature, as well as important business-related issues awaiting the Legislature in 2019.

A significant portion of the forum will be dedicated to Blueprint Nebraska, a recently formed organization that is spearheading a statewide economic development initiative. Blueprint Nebraska seeks to establish a comprehensive, long-term plan to stimulate the state’s economic growth, competitiveness and prosperity, while building on current strengths.

For more than three decades, the Nebraska Chamber has conducted these legislative forums to gather input from the business community on issues of concern, while providing a review of recent legislation considered by the state lawmakers.

All local chamber of commerce members, as well as members of the news media, are encouraged to attend. Elected leaders are also invited.

To make reservations, contact Beatrice Area Chamber of Commerce, 218 N 5th Street, info@beatricechamber.com or 402-223-2338, by Wednesday, October 3, 2018.
