Date Set for Annual Chamber Trip to Montgomery

By B.A. Little, Reporter •

JACKSON COUNTY, Ala. — The Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce has scheduled its annual Montgomery Drive-In for April 7-8, 2020. A briefing with several state officials has planned as well as meetings with Senator Steve Livingston, Representative Tommy Hanes, Representative Ritchie Whorton, and others. The Leadership Jackson County class will also be joining us for a reception and dinner.

“The health of any economy is dependent upon the soundness and vitality of its business community,” said Dylan Smith, Chairman of the Board. “It is an extremely important function of any government body to do everything logical and reasonable to enable its business community to function as smoothly and effectively as is possible. However, in return, it is the responsibility of the business community to make government officials aware of the various ways in which the government can assist with the creation and flow of business activities and opportunities. The Chamber is excited to coordinate our annual Montgomery Drive-In and encourages members of our community to travel with us and meet with our legislative delegation and other state leaders to discuss policy matters that are of importance to them.”

This legislative trip is being presented by the Public Policy and Advocacy Initiative of Gateway to the Future, the Chamber’s Five-Year Community and Economic Development Program.

Anyone interested in going with us should call the Chamber at 256-259-5500 or email
