The Miami Area Chamber of Commerce will host Eggs ‘N Issues, a legislative breakfast, at the Oct. 24 at the Northeast Oklahoma A&M College ball room.
Doors will open at 7:30 am for a breakfast buffet followed by an informal meeting with elected officials.
City, state, tribal and federal officials have been invited to attend the Friday event, including state Sen. Charles Wyrick, state Rep. Larry Glenn, U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, and U.S. Rep Dan Boren.
“With the election just 11 days after the breakfast, we are hopeful that the U.S. Senators and the Congressman will be able to join us and bring us up to date on the economics of the nation,” said Cindy Morris, executive director of the chamber of commerce.
“The chamber's Government Relations Committee serves as the coordinator of the Eggs ‘N Issue program that is held twice a year,” Morris said. “Eggs ‘N Issues is a meeting that provides everyone the opportunity to become better informed regarding issues that affect our business district and quality of life. Attendees are also able to visit with the elected officials and share their concerns and ask questions.”
Each legislator will be allotted approximately 10 minutes to give updates on activities in their area of government.
A question and answer period will follow if time allows.
“This breakfast is open to the public,” said Judee Snodderly, Government Relations Committee chairwoman. “Each year our business owners deal with various issues that affect their business and how they do business. By attending this breakfast, businesses and citizens can discuss these issues with the legislators face to face.”
The cost to attend is $8 per person and includes a buffet breakfast.
Reservations are required and should be made by no later than Oct. 23 by calling the Miami Area Chamber of Commerce at (918) 542-4481 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
