Delegation Heading to Lexington, KY in October

On October 24-26, the Chamber is leading a group of more than 60 community members to Lexington, KY for Leadership Visit 2017. The group will meet with business, government, and community leaders while in Lexington to exchange ideas and best practices on topics including land use planning and economic development; merged government and resources; social equity and thriving together; real estate market; healthcare collaboration, regional draw and economic impact; and leveraging higher education. The Chamber’s goal as the facilitating entity of the Leadership Visit is to have key decision-makers spend the three-day trip interacting about how we can bring back ideas for positive changes for our community.

A very limited number of seats are still available on the trip. Return the registration form today to join the business, community, nonprofit, civic, educational, healthcare and other leaders who have already signed up for this experience.
