The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce’s State Legislative Breakfast will be held in conjunction with the Power in Partnership (PIP) breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Jan. 19 at Trinity Oaks, 728 Klumac Road. Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is the co-sponsor.

All four state legislators who represent Rowan County plan to attend, including Sen. Andrew Brock, Sen. Tom McInnis. Rep. Carl Ford and Rep. Harry Warren.

The dates and topics for the remaining 2017 PIP series are: Feb. 16, the arts; March 16, agribusiness; April 20, health care; and, May 18, Leadership Rowan graduation.

The chamber’s breakfast series averaged more than 150 attendees each month during its past three seasons. The PIP series brings in speakers and provides networking opportunities. Sponsors provide a five-minute sponsor profile on their company. Partner agencies will share updates with local business leaders and address issues of concern for the region.

The Leadership Rowan class will start its day at the breakfast, then venture out for each day’s session focused on a different aspect of the community.
