Government Affairs Connection



Government Affairs Connection

Government Affairs Connection is a forum focusing on timely topics of local interest in our community. It’s imperative that the business community hears from local government leaders to ensure that we understand the status of our economic climate. So much can be improved, supported, or mitigated by engaging with discussions that surround policy changes. Building upon the foundation of the Elevate Governmental Affairs Committee, Elevate wants to share these important monthly updates to our investors on a larger scale. Join the discussion the first Thursday of each month.

Crackerbarrels



Crackerbarrels provide the opportunity for Elevate investors and the Black Hills community to hear directly from area legislators and ask questions concerning issues of the 96th South Dakota Legislative Session.

Bring your questions about legislative bills or issues to submit to a panel of Representatives and Senators from Districts 30, 32, 33, 34, and 35. Don’t have a question? Consider tuning in to the livestream to hear the discussion about key topics for this year.
