A Report Card:
The First 100 Days of Trump Administration
Wednesday, May 3, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Belle Salle Banquets, 1920 E. New York St., Aurora
Sponsored by Earthmover Credit Union

On Wednesday, March 3, 2017, the Aurora Regional Chamber will discuss President Donald Trump’s “First One-Hundred Days” (OK, 104, to be exact). Ben Taylor, executive director, Great Lakes Regional Office U.S. Chamber of Commerce, will be our featured speaker. From the transition and inauguration, through the confirmation process, and on to various Executive Actions and proposed legislation in the 115th Congress, we will seek to answer the following: “Where have we been; where are we now; and where are we headed? Likely topics of discussion include healthcare, tax and regulatory reform, as well as infrastructure. Please bring your questions and concerns; we want to make this an interactive session! Ben will share what he has learned and observed and what this means to employers and our region.

Register today.
