Will YOU Be Part of the Picture This Year?

Last year a RECORD-SETTING 15 Avon Chamber members (pictured below) made the trip to Hartford to join with hundreds of other business leaders from across the state to voice their support for legislation that will improve the state's business climate and economy

(l-r):  Cal Miller-Stevens, Miller Foods/Oma's Pride | Chip Janiszewski, Happiness & Success GPS | Jeffrey Hoess-Brooks, Avon Old Farms Hotel | Ketil Osland | Claudia Rucci, Claudia Decor | Greg Tuers, Greg Tuers Manufacturing | Sylvia Colvin, Keller Williams Realty/The Colvin Group | Bill Lacourciere, Molly Maid of Farmington and Greater Hartford | John Carmon, Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center | Lucien Rucci, Claudia Decor | Katie Kehoe | Kim Murphy, Northwest Community Bank | Jim Gordon, The Salvation Army | Jerri Bonnell, People's United Bank | Len Diana, An Infinite Abundance

Travel to the State Capitol with Your Avon Chamber as we join with hundreds of other business organizations from across the state to take part in the biggest business-focused day of the year. 

The legislature is more balanced than it has been in a long time, the recommendations from the special Commission on Fiscal Stability and Economic Growth are due on March 1, and it is an election year -- so legislators will be interested in listening and discussing the issues that impact you as a businessperson in Connecticut.  Engage your local lawmakers and other state policymakers and help deliver our message of promoting fiscal responsibility that results in real economic growth by creating a more stable, predictable, and competitive business climate.
