BRISTOL – The Central CT Chambers of Commerce is now accepting submitted questions for local legislators in preparation for their Regional Legislative Forum on Feb. 18.

The forum will be held remotely this year from 8 to 9 a.m. The Central CT Chambers of Commerce has invited 16 legislators from Bristol, Plymouth, Wolcott, Burlington, Farmington and Plainville to participate.

In addition to questions which people will be able to email to the Chamber prior to the event, the Chamber will also be coming up with questions for the legislators that are pertinent to local business owners.

“We have a meeting this Thursday to pull those questions together and come up with our Legislative Action Plan,” said Cindy Bombard, president and CEO of the Central CT Chambers of Commerce. “We also have meetings with other Chambers of Commerce to compare our legislative agendas and see if we’re missing anything.”

Bombard said she had hoped to hold this year’s event at least partially in person, but CDC guidelines required it to be held remotely.

This year’s Regional Legislative Forum is sponsored by Bristol All Heart, Bristol Health, Covana, ESPN, Thomaston Savings Bank, UConn Health and Webster Bank.

“We want to thank our amazing sponsors for hanging in there with us despite the challenges of covid-19,” said Bombard.

To submit questions for the Regional Legislative Forum, email info@centralctchambers.org.

Registration is $15 for Chamber members and $30 for non-members.

To register, visit centralctchambers.org and click on the calendar. Bombard said people will be able to register up until the day before the event. Once people register, they will receive an email with a link to the Zoom meeting.
