On September 1, the Indiana Chamber began engaging the 2016 gubernatorial candidates on key public policy issues; our Beyond the Bicentennial campaign kicked off that day with a press conference in Indianapolis.
This effort features a series of letters rooted in the four drivers of Indiana Vision 2025, our long-term economic development action plan for the state.
The topics and release dates:
To complement and build upon Indiana’s strong growth in technology companies and jobs, the Indiana Chamber formed the Indiana Technology & Innovation Council. The mission: Protect and advance the public policy interests of these organizations, while partnering to promote programming and industry trends.
“The Indiana Chamber has focused on advancing Indiana through pro-employer, pro-jobs public policies throughout our 94-year history,” notes Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar.

The focused effort in this area aligns perfectly with the Dynamic and Creative Culture driver of our Indiana Vision 2025 long-range economic development plan.” Read full story
