Join us for our annual Legislative Luncheon on Monday, August 26th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at Rivertown Community Church as we welcome the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in honoring Congressman Dunn with the Spirit of Enterprise Award.
In April, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce honored 263 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and 55 members of the U.S. Senate with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of their support for pro-growth policies in the second session of the 115th Congress. It has become a tradition for members to receive the awards in their home district while on recess. The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to partner with the U.S. Chamber to present the award locally.
Sponsored by Anderson Columbia, this Special Government Affairs Legislative Luncheon will also provide a glimpse into the future of the upcoming State Legislative Session.
