Come out Saturday morning, May 22 to stretch your legs and socialize in-person while doing good for the community by participating in our Wilson Walkability & Bikeability Audit! Or join the Windsor, Windham, and Southington Chambers online tomorrow morning for Chambers in the Morning networking. Check out the many other events and opportunities going on this month below!

Finally, don't forget the 37th Annual Chamber Cares Auction, presented by Windsor Federal Savings, which will be held online from May 21 to May 28.

Lunch and Learn: the Public Option

Connecticut Comptroller Kevin Lembo has unveiled legislation, currently before the state Senate, to allow businesses with 50 employees or fewer (and nonprofits of all sizes) to buy into the state's group medical plan, and provide additional state subsidies to make individual exchange plans more affordable. This plan has aroused controversy and passionate debate.

Local businesses and nonprofits now have a chance to hear from Comptroller Lembo, ask questions, and share their thoughts, by joining us for a Lunch and Learn with the Comptroller from 12-1 on Thursday, May 13!
