The Rockford Chamber of Commerce (RCC) is proud to present its annual “State of the Community” Luncheon. The luncheon is part of the RCC’s popular Bi-Monthly Luncheon Series. This special event is scheduled from noon until 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 12 at Rockford High School, 4100 Kroes Street. The luncheon is open to the general public.

The RCC has partnered with many entities to bring attendees an informative, comprehensive overview of many aspects of their community. Those attending can enjoy a lunch while featured presenters highlight their area of expertise. Special guests, and their topics, include:

• State of the Michigan House of Representatives: Rep. Pete MacGregor, 73rd

• State of the County: Roger Morgan, chair, Kent County Board
of Commissioners

• State of the City of Rockford: Michael Young, city manager

• State of the Rockford Public Schools: Dr. Michael Shibler, superintendent

• State of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce: Dr. Carl Stites, president

The RCC is also working with the offices of Senator Debbie Stabenow. Stabenow is unable to attend due to the senate meeting that afternoon. However, she has graciously agreed to tape a message specifically for the RCC event.

Congressman Justin Amash, Senator Mark Jansen and the local townships have been asked to give a comprehensive written overview of their areas to keep you up-to-date with issues that affect the community. Information will be compiled into an informational packet that will be distributed at the luncheon.

This special installment of the Bi-Monthly Luncheon is one you do not want to miss. To attend this timely presentation, please call the RCC at (616) 866-2000, or e-mail to to register. Cost, which includes lunch, is $15 for RCC members and $20 for non-members.
