“The Columbus Chamber is here to advocate for the needs of this region’s businesses and help them be more successful,” said Michael Dalby, president and CEO, Columbus Chamber. “Government Day gives us an opportunity to re-energize and elevate our government relations program by connecting businesses and public officials and providing a forum for them to engage on business-critical issues.”
