Valley Chamber to promote region at CT Business Day in Hartford

Hundreds of Connecticut business leaders from across the state will converge on the state Capitol for Connecticut Business Day 2015 on Wednesday, March 25.

They will share their concerns with lawmakers about a number of issues, including the state's fiscal condition, the economy, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's proposed two-year budget, workplace mandates, and government regulations.

Attendees are expected to include representatives from the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce that serves Shelton, including local business people.

The event “provides an opportunity to network with business leaders from across the state and hear from leaders of the General Assembly about key business proposals and to make your voice heard on issues impacting your business,” according to the Valley Chamber.
