Join us at the State Legislative Office And Learn About CT 20X17 Statewide Campaign

Date: Wednesday, March 25
Time: 7:30 am to noon
Location: State Legislative Office Building, Hartford

On Wednesday, March 25, come to the state Legislative Office Building in Hartford and join other Chambers of Commerce and their members for Connecticut Business Day 2015.
Based on the CT 20×17 campaign, we’ll focus on how to make Connecticut a top state for business and what state lawmakers should do this year to help achieve that goal.
Besides inviting the Governor to speak and legislative leaders to speak, we will also have updates on proposed legislation and on the CT 20×17 statewide campaign.
You’ll also find it easier to have meetings with your legislative delegations.
We’re reserving four breakout rooms from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for regional meetings. We’re inviting legislators to come and join each of the regional breakout meetings to meet with businesses and discuss the ways we can move up Connecticut’s business rankings.
Tolland and Windham Counties will be in room 1B.
