State Chamber Legislative Forum
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 Scottsbluff/Gering, this forum will be held on Tuesday, August 28 th beginning at Noon and lasting until 1:00 p.m. at the Scotts Bluff Country Club in conjunction with Rotary. Call 308-632-2133 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.

All local chamber of commerce members, as well as members of the news media, are encouraged to attend. Elected leaders are also invited. The cost of this event is $11.00 for lunch and reservations are required.

State Chamber President Bryan Slone said: “Job creation and workforce issues, along with the economy, continue to be the most pressing issues facing most Nebraska communities. These forums will give local leaders more insight into the factors affecting our state’s economic climate and growth potential.”

To make reservations, contact the Scottsbluff/Gering United Chamber of Commerce at 308-632-2133 or office@scottsbluffgering.net.
