Date: February 21, 2019
Time: 1:30 PM - 7:00 PM CST
Event Description:
Business Day at the Legislature has been a cornerstone event of the Chamber for more than 40 years.  As with any event, the format of the day has undergone an evolutionary process to remain relevant and provide value to the membership and local community leaders who help drive attendance.  2019 marks the next phase in that process.

Business Day will be held at the Pierre Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center, beginning early afternoon.

1:30 PM - Registration Opens
2-3:30 PM – David Owen's Legislative Update and Business Caucus
3:30 – 5 PM – Time at the Capitol with special speaker at 4 o’clock (topic and speaker to be deteremined after the Legislative Session is underway)
5 – 7:00 PM – Reception at the Ramkota with heavy hors d'oeuvres
Special program at 6 o’clock
7 PM – Adjourn

Providing leadership on legislative, regulatory and ballot initiative issues is the core strength of the Chamber and our strengths in these areas comprise the core benefits of membership in the Chamber.  Business Day provides an opportunity:
  • To bring together like-minded citizens/members to learn about and discuss the legislative, regulatory and ballot initiative issues being debated
  • To demonstrate the collective voice of business and industry to state policy makers, including legislators, executive branch and statewide officials
  • For attendees to voice their opinions on these issues during Business Caucus
  • For networking, which is a valued component of the event
  • To inform and advocate with department officials and legislators on these issues
