Issues & Eggs, the original legislative breakfast, is coming Jan. 12 to the Charleston Marriott Town Center.
It is scheduled for 7:30 to 9 a.m.
Join the Charleston Regional Chamber of Commerce in its more than 50-year tradition of bringing lawmakers and business and community leaders face to face to discuss the issues that will shape our state’s future. Issues & Eggs, the largest and first legislative breakfast in the state, draws a sell-out crowd. Last year, more than 70 legislators and 250 business leaders attended.
“As we prepare for another legislative session, the Charleston Chamber wants to be proactive and introduce innovative ideas,” said Matt Ballard, the Chamber’s president and CEO. “At the same time, we want to keep a look out for policies and bills that could impact the region and state.”
“Issues & Eggs presents an excellent opportunity for you to hear directly from your representatives on the issues that matter to you and your business,” Ballard said. “Issues & Eggs typically draws a sold-out crowd and is one of our most anticipated and popular events of the year.”
The event will feature a preview of the Chamber’s 2011 legislative agenda, keynote address and Q&A session.
Tickets are $35 for members and $45 for future members. Prices increase to $45 and $55 after Jan. 7.
Sponsors include AEP, BB&T, Charleston Area Medical Center, Spilman Thomas & Battle and Triad Engineering. For sponsorship information, call (304) 340-4253.
