The Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce heads to D.C.

Solutions to economic development issues require a meeting of the minds. 

On September 27th, local dignitaries, business owners, as well as people from the private, public and educational sectors, go to the Chamber's tenth annual Washington, D.C. conference to hammer out plans for new economic opportunities for Colorado.

 "It's a wonderful opportunity to build business relationships and to connect with the congressional delegation for the good of Southern Colorado as a whole," says Stephannie Finley, the Chamber's President for Government Affairs and Public Policy. 

Last years conference lead to the creation of the Colorado Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), which helps businesses win government contracts.  This year, the focus is on the healthcare delivery system, military defense systems, alternative energy and online distance learning initiatives. 

The goal is not only to talk about solutions, but to also bring back a meaningful plan to put into play in Colorado.
