Tour stops included St. Joseph, Kosciusko, Fulton, and Starke Counties
MISHAWAKA – In an effort to advocate on behalf of Hoosier small businesses, Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02) yesterday concluded her ‘Chamber of Commerce’ tour throughout Indiana’s Second Congressional District.
“Local chambers of commerce have long been a crucial element to our area’s business initiatives,” Walorski said. “As connections and networks continue to grow in importance, organizations like local chambers serve a key purpose: helping local businesses grow and succeed.”
For the past several decades, the goal of many chambers of commerce across Indiana has been to help further the interests of small businesses in local areas. Their activities and involvement can range from hosting events, to lobbying local representatives, to coordinating charitable works for the betterment of the community.
Throughout the day, Walorski visited several chambers of commerce to hear from local leaders on how they developed and connected the next generation of leaders.
“Strong leadership is vital to driving economic growth, building a more inclusive community, and ultimately making Indiana a better place to live and work. Many of the local chambers have embraced the mission of developing leadership in our state in order to grow our economy and make our communities the best places to live and thrive.”
On Friday and Monday, Walorski visited a number of counties including:
- St. Joseph County, to speak with the St. Joseph County Chamber of Commerce.
- Kosciusko County, to speak with the Syracuse-Wawasee Chamber of Commerce.
- Starke and Pulaski Counties, to speak with the Starke County Chamber of Commerce and the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce.
