The 21st Century Missouri Transportation System Task Force has been asked to evaluate the condition of the state’s roads and bridges and examine current funding levels; part of that process is a series of public meetings statewide, including one at the Chamber offices on August 23.
Fort Leonard Wood hosted more than 40 Chamber members on August 15 for a day trip designed to further the relationship between Springfield and the military community.
While the City, County and Sheriff’s Department did the work to reach an agreement settling the lawsuit surrounding the transportation and housing of prisoners and the use of the Justice Center, the Chamber was serve behind the scenes in the role of “Trusted Convener” and “Honest Broker.”
The Chamber’s Public Affairs team is always working to advocate for business interests with local, state and federal legislators. But many members may not be aware of another aspect of the Chamber’s work: regulatory issues.
For those in the business community who have ever wondered how our military institutions operate, or for those that are interested in learning about how they can work with the military in a business capacity, mark August 15 on the calendar.
The Chamber is always looking for ways to help connect its members with decision makers in local, state and federal government.
