Legislative Roundtable provides a setting for dialogue to take place on public policy issues and gives public agency staff, elected officials, their staff and businesses an opportunity to network. The meeting has a guest speaker on a public sector topic and regular updates from our local cities, agencies and elected officials.
Staff members provide brief reports from their prospective agencies to inform each other and members of the chamber of upcoming events or other items of interest.
