Carter County Officials to Present at Legislative Luncheon
As the voice for the business community, the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce represents business interests in public policy and civic arenas by tracking legislative issues and advocating for business interests to government officials on the local, state and federal levels. The Chamber represents the interests of sound policy to give local businesses a competitive edge, allow them to hire more workers, and expand in southern Oklahoma.
To bring these issues home for our members, the Chamber hosts bi-weekly Legislative Luncheons during the legislative sessions. We will hold our second Legislative Luncheon of the year on March 17, 2017, featuring our Carter County Commissioners and elected officials.
County Commissioners Joe David McReynolds, Bill Baker, and Jerry Alvord will be in attendance, as well as County Clerk Kayelyn Clubb and Sheriff Chris Bryant.
Our Carter County representatives will provide an update on current activities, pending legislation and its impact on Carter County as well as answer questions from attendees. “The format of the legislative luncheons was adjusted several years ago to allow our members access to other elected officials in an informal setting. This change has received positive feedback from our members and those who participate in the luncheons,” states Mita Bates, President of the Chamber.
Legislative Luncheons begin at 11:30 am with box lunches available for $10.00. The presentations will begin at noon. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Chamber 580-223-7765 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org before 12:00 pm on March 15, 2017.
