2021 Statehouse Reconnect

Statehouse Reconnect
In mid-March, Chamber members met virtually with elected officials and policy makers in Columbus to communicate legislative priorities on behalf of our region and influence state policy. With the evolving nature of priorities and policies at the state level due to COVID-19, we invite you to join us as we travel to Columbus for our first in-person Statehouse Reconnect.

Join us as we reconnect with legislators, policy makers and political leaders. You will have the unique opportunity to carry the voice of our region to the statehouse to advocate for regional business priorities, as well as maintain and build relationships with key government leaders.
