Hundreds of business leaders and chambers of commerce representatives from across the state will converge on the state Capitol Wednesday, March 4 for Connecticut Business Day 2020.

It's a key opportunity for employers to engage with their state legislators and share their ideas for improving the state's business climate and competitiveness.

Registration begins at 7:30 am in Room 2D of the Legislative Office Building, 300 Capitol Ave., Hartford, and the program starts at 9 am in Room 2C.

CBIA president and CEO Joe Brennan opens the program with Lynn Ward, representing the Waterbury Regional Chamber and the Connecticut Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives.

Employers will also hear from state agency commissioners, including the Department of Revenue Services' John Biello, Katie Dykes from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, Josh Geballe from the Department of Administrative Services, and the Department of Economic and Community Development's Glendowlyn Thames.

Meet Your Lawmakers

Regional breakout sessions then give employers the opportunity to interact with lawmakers and discuss the critical challenges business leaders face.

After the breakouts, attendees are encouraged to schedule personal meet-and-greets with state legislators. CBIA is happy to help connect employers with lawmakers.

Thanks to the support from chambers of commerce and other business and trade groups, Business Day 2020 is free of charge.

But please register so we can reserve your place—and ensure your voice is heard.
