The Gubernatorial Candidates Meet and Greet is on January 10th!


Join us for a constructive dialogue with our Gubernatorial Candidates about the issues impacting the small business community in our state on Friday, January 10th, from 10:30 am to 1:05 pm in the Grand Oaks Pavilion Meeting Room at the Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus, located at 2815 Jorie Blvd in Oak Brook.

We need real reform and leadership for small business in Springfield. Small businesses significantly impact Illinois’ economy. They represent 98.3 percent of all employers and employ 48.0 percent of the private-sector labor force. Small businesses are crucial to the fiscal condition of the state and numbered 1.2 million in 2010. Let’s give small business the voice it deserves!

We have allocated time for each candidate to speak, followed by a period for questions from our audience.

Fee is $40 and includes buffet lunch. To purchase your ticket click here.
