The NAWBO® Central Illinois membership has stressed how important it is to stay up to date
on the economy and public policy issues impacting our businesses and communities. This is an opportunity for business owners to connect, get firsthand information and get questions answered.
This will also be an opportunity for central Illinois business owners to learn more about
NAWBO® Central Illinois, the benefits of membership, and the benefits to our communities.
The public policy event provides exposure to local, regional, and state representatives
not only to learn from them but be heard as business owners and have concerns about the
unique needs of area business owners addressed.
This year the event will be at the Par-A-Dice Hotel in East Peoria March 28. Registration
begins at 1:30 p.m. and the event ends at 7 p.m. There will be four educational opportunities covering the healthcare exchange, the economy, Focus Forward CI, and business resources available; a panel discussion with area mayors; and a keynote speaker.
