Legislative forum Aug. 27

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 Aurora, this forum will be held Monday, Aug. 27 at the Bremer Community Center beginning at 11:30 a.m. and lasting until 1 p.m. Call 402-631-9048 for more information.
This year’s State Chamber presentation will examine 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 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.  
“Job creation and workforce issues, along with the economy, continue to be the most pressing issues facing most Nebraska communities,” said State Chamber President Bryan Slone. “These forums will give local leaders more insight into the factors affecting our state’s economic climate and growth potential.”  
To make reservations, contact Jayne Mann Smith at 402-631-9048 or by email at wortmans@hamilton.net.
