Decatur, IL – On Wednesday, the Decatur Regional Chamber of Commerce, along with a delegation of business leaders, attended Chamber Day hosted by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the Illinois Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (IACCE) in Springfield.
The group heard from several presenters including Speaker of the House Chris Welch and House Republican Leader Jim Durkin. Both spoke about the budget, the passing of the most recent crime bill, and their differing views. The group also heard from Jim Kaitschuck of the Illinois Sheriffs’ Association on public safety in our communities and the need to support law enforcement.
Chamber Day allowed business leaders to learn more about legislation affecting their business, the opportunity for a face-to-face meeting and Q & A session with leaders in the Illinois House of Representatives.
Looking back on the event, Chamber President Mirinda Rothrock said, “It was an informative conference. Everyone who attended found value and gained knowledge beyond their respective field of business.”
