During its annual meeting Wednesday, the Indy Chamber laid out its 2022 legislative priorities and held elections for leadership roles on its board of directors. The newly-elected leadership adopted an agenda the chamber is pushing ahead of the next session of the Indiana General Assembly.
The chamber says its agenda reflects a business community eager to rise above the economic and political turmoil of the past two years, much of which is associated with the pandemic.
In terms of leadership, Melissa Proffitt of Indianapolis-based law firm Ice Miller will chair the chamber’s board of directors. She’s joined by Browning Investments CEO John Hirschman as vice-chair and Citizens Energy Group CEO Jeffrey Harrison as treasurer.
It is urging Indiana lawmakers to respect local businesses as the “best-positioned authorities” on workplace health and safety. Other issues include K-12 education achievements gaps, juvenile justice reform and downtown safety.
