We are asking attendees to submit questions in advance, although there will also be an opportunity to ask questions online on the day. You can submit your questions online to here

Benefits of attending

  • Use the gravitas of the Chamber to influence and campaign on the business issues that matter – locally, regionally, and nationally.
