The Chamber’s Government Affairs department offers many ways for you to stay informed about business issues including Third House forums (the next one is on April 20!), weekly updates on bills and issues in the GovConnect e-newsletter and current happenings through Twitter.

You can also take a proactive role by following legislation yourself. Here are some resources to help you become more active and informed about government actions at the state and local level.

Stay informed about state politics by:

  • Watching committee hearings online and following bills that concern your business at in.gov/legislative.

At the local level, you can catch Fort Wayne City Council Meetings (city council committee meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of each month and regular city council meetings are the second and fourth Tuesday of each month) in several ways:

  • In Person: Attend the meeting at Citizen’s Square (room 30) beginning at 5:30 p.m. 
  • TV: Watch live on Channel 58 (Comcast) or Channel 28 (Frontier)
  • Streaming: Watch live online on the city’s website (cityoffortwayne.org)
  • Online: Watch past council meetings online at afw.pegcentral.com

The Chamber’s Government Affairs staff is available to help members stay up-to-date with local, state and federal government. Follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/FWGovConnect to get the most recent news.
