The program is so stimulating because it really touches on the core of who we are at the NACC, community leaders. You might not think of yourself in that way, but the only thing that separates those who want to be a leader and those that are is one’s willingness to volunteer their time to make Naperville just a little bit better.
If you haven’t attended our Legislative Forums recently, I’d encourage you to visit again. You don’t need to be a card-carrying Member of the club, all meetings are open to the public. But we do ask that you come with a desire to make our community stronger, to listen and provide feedback about your experiences and your desires for the business community in Naperville. Our elected officials are looking to us to step up and be leaders. Will you join us?
The next meeting is on August 22 from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. at our office located at 55 S. Main St, Suite 351. We will have a Roundtable Discussion with the 5th District DuPage County Board Members. All that’s missing is you.
