GLGA is hosting a Legislative Roundtable on Monday, December 17, 2018, at Jimmy’s Charhouse in Elk Grove Village, IL. With a new General Assembly and a new governor about to take office in January 2019, we will discuss proposals and bills that will affect our industry and how we can form a strategic plan.

We have some heavy lifting on the table this session with some proposed legislation that would negatively affect our trade, and we need membership input!

The program includes lunch.
