Event Description:
Business Day at the Legislature

The South Dakota Chamber's annual event provides an opportunity for our members and for community and business leaders from across the state to meet in Pierre and have a voice in the legislative process.

The 2018 schedule will follow our format of holding the event during President's Day week, Thursday, February 22 is this year's date.  We are continuing the popular condensed format that makes travel easier for a one day trip.


Legislators are hosted at the banquet by local chambers of commerce and the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  The Chamber Board of Directors hosts members of the cabinet and constitutional officers.

We are pleased to announce this year's speakers.  Our lunch program, sponsored by Jeff Lautt and POET, will feature Michael Walz, Director of Public Affairs/State Government for POET, Washington, DC.  Our  keynote banquet speaker will be Aurelia Skipwith, US Department of Interior, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife and Parks, Washington, DC.
