"State of" Event Series



The McLean County Chamber of Commerce's "State of" Event Series provides opportunities for federal, state, county and local government leaders to highlight current initiatives and successes. Our primary goal of the Series is to connect the local business community with legislative and government leaders to hear from them directly.


We unpack policy issues and regional topics so our members can stay informed on current events that impact their business. The Chamber's advocacy efforts are shaped to expand and grow businesses and strengthen our region.


Join us for each of our "State of" panel discussions, where you get to hear directly from legislators on current issues, projects and events that impact the business community. See below for details on each of our upcoming events.
