Join hundreds of your fellow business leaders Tuesday, March 16 for Connecticut Business Day 2021.

Your voice matters—this is your opportunity to share your concerns and challenges with state legislators and help improve the state’s business climate and competitiveness.

The day begins with a welcome session and remarks from Gov. Ned Lamont, including opportunities for you to ask questions.

Rep. Holly Cheeseman (R-Niantic), Sen. Joan Hartley (D-Waterbury), Sen. Kevin Witkos (R- Canton), and Rep. Kerry Wood (D- Rocky Hill) will share why they signed CBIA's Rebuilding Connecticut policy pledge.

The four are among a bipartisan group of 55 state legislators who support the 11-point policy recommendations, designed to help employers manage the high costs of navigating COVID-19 restrictions, create and retain jobs, and drive the state’s economic recovery.

Grassroots

Joe Eyer, vice president of public affairs for AT&T, and Kelly Memphis, senior manager of government relations and stakeholder engagement practice for the Public Affairs Council, will provide insight, resources, and tools for effectively engaging with legislators and the importance of grassroots advocacy.

Milford Chamber of Commerce executive director Pam Staneski will moderate that grassroots discussion.

 And CBIA’s Eric Gjede will update you on the latest from the 2021 General Assembly session, including the status of key legislative proposals.

The next few years are pivotal for Connecticut’s economic future. Your attendance March 16 sends a message that businesses are a part of the solution.

Registration is free, but please register in advance.
