Get involved, get involvement
Election season is upon us with candidates running to represent Bendites at all levels of government — from City Council and County Commissioners to the State Legislature in Salem. The Bend Chamber of Commerce is excited to host a series of forums focusing on the business community to introduce the candidates and learn about their policy platforms. You’ll hear from the candidates firsthand, plus have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session.
Before and after our speakers, we’ll have plenty of time for networking — plus bites and beverages. Beverages will be provided, including beer from Deschutes Brewery, cider from AVID Cider, plus appetizers from Bleu Bite Catering.
Join us on Wednesday, September 14 to hear from the candidates running for Oregon State Representative.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Program starts at 5:30 p.m.
