Public Policy - The Fight for Illinois

At our annual Public Policy event, we will focus on what is happening in the State of Illinois. Not only does this affect our businesses, but our personal lives as well. Who better to lead this action-packed evening than Dr. Orphe Divounguy from the Illinois Policy Institute.

Dr. Divounguy is their chief economist, where he focuses on labor market performance and tax and economic policies affecting the State of Illinois. He is a Ph.D. economist whose work has been featured on CNN Business, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business,The Wall Street Journal and numerous TV news and radio outlets across the nation.

The Illinois Policy Institute is an independent organization generating public policy solutions aimed at promoting personal freedom and prosperity in Illinois. Illinois' comeback story starts here.  They educate and engage citizens, lawmakers and the courts to ensure all Illinoisians have honest, effect and transparent government, economic policies that create jobs and opportunity, limited taxation, a fair criminal justice system and educational opportunities that prepare each child for the future.

This is going to be a rousing evening.  Mark your calendars now!  And, then make your reservation!
