    Time: 7:00 AM - 11:30 AM CDT
    Event Description:
    The State Legislative Forum is now sold out!
    If interested in attending, please email stevie.poole@lubbockbiz.org to add your name to the waiting list. We will do our best to accommodate additional attendees should a seat become available.

    In a half-day session, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce State Legislative Forum, presented by the Lubbock Association of REALTORS, connects local business leaders to top state lawmakers to discuss key West Texas issues.

    Texas enjoys a healthy economic environment, especially after the last Texas State Legislative Session. To ensure that remains the case, solid business influence and advocacy must take place even between sessions. Seize this opportunity to join in on the discussions and support the Lubbock Chamber?s advocacy efforts.

    The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce State Legislative Forum will feature elected officials from across Texas, as well as Lubbock's very own Senator Charles Perry, Representative John Frullo and Representative Dustin Burrows.
