    Event Description:


    Did you know Connecticut ranks 46th in the U.S. for cost of doing business?

    High taxes and numerous workplace mandates make it hard for businesses to grow in this state, but we want you to know that you’re not in this fight alone.

    Hundreds of business leaders, as well as our partner chambers of commerce from across the state, will converge on the state Capitol Wednesday, March 4 for Connecticut Business Day.

    This is your opportunity to tell state lawmakers how legislation impacts your ability to create jobs and grow your company.

    Reach out to your lawmakers before Business Day through Phone2Action!

    Come join the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce in attending CT Business Day at the Capitol. Sponsored by WeHa Wheels!

    We will be meeting at the Chamber Office (Bank of America Parking Lot) at 948 Farmington Ave, at 7AM on March 4th. 

    Taking WeHa Wheels to the Capital! 

    WeHa Wheels will be picking us up at 7AM and returning to the Chamber parking lot after the events. Please Join US in a day designed to interact with your legislators and representatives.
