Ord Legislative Forum Set for September 10

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.

The Ord forum will be held on September 10 at the Ord Area Chamber office from 12:00-1:30 pm. There is no cost to attend. Lunch will be provided for attendees. Call (308) 728-7875 to RSVP or with any questions.

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 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.

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.”
