Legislative Coffees

Legislative Coffees are designed to give all Chamber members, public officials and citizens an opportunity to hear the latest news from the Legislature and to have their questions and concerns heard.  Area legislators are asked to review the latest activity of the House and Senate chamber of the Legislature and state their views and opinions on potential outcomes followed by a question and answer session. The forums are open to the public and moderated by a member appointed by the Chamber board of directors. 

Legislative Coffees are held at the Wilson Middle School Auditorium, 715 North 21st Street in Council Bluffs from 9:00-10:00 am.
