Gov. Eric Holcomb will be Featured Speaker at 103rd Annual Bedford Chamber Dinner

(BEDFORD) – Gov. Eric Holcomb will be the featured speaker at the 103rd annual Bedford Chamber dinner, set for Aug. 23, 2019.

A lifelong Hoosier, Holcomb is a veteran of the United States Navy, served as the state’s 51st lieutenant governor, was a trusted adviser to both Gov. Mitch Daniels and Sen. Dan Coats, worked for Congressman John Hostettler and is a former state chairman of the Indiana Republican Party.

“We have been fortunate to have a history of great speakers and we believe the opportunity to hear from Gov. Holcomb fits perfectly with our mission to facilitate collaboration between businesses, policymakers, and the community,” said Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Shance Sizemore.

Holcomb was elected governor in November 2016, following an unprecedented 106-day campaign and was sworn in Jan. 9, 2017.

In 2018, Holcomb partnered with the Markle Foundation to launch “Skillful Indiana,” to bridge the divide between the skills Hoosiers have and the skills businesses need. Indiana is just the second state to have this program.

Under his leadership, Indiana has had two consecutive record-breaking years for job commitments. In 2018, 320 companies committed to create at least 31,000 jobs in Indiana.

Next Level Connections, a $1 billion program focused on accelerating major road projects, is focused on increasing access to high-speed, affordable internet to unserved Hoosiers.

More details about the event will be released soon and sponsorships are available.
