The Riverbank Chamber of Commerce will host Congressman Jeff Denham (R-Atwater) in a gathering of local business leaders to address the economic concerns and opportunities of the Central Valley at a luncheon in Riverbank on Tuesday, March 18.
“Riverbank businesses and our surrounding areas have been hit hard by the recession,” stated Riverbank Chamber President, Jerry Van Houten. “The future economic forecast of increased taxes, Affordable Care Act and minimum wage increases, has businesses proceeding with caution. We look forward to hearing from the Congressman to see what’s on the horizon for our area and how we can help boost a business friendly community.”
The Riverbank Chamber of Commerce celebrates its 60th year anniversary in 2014 and currently represents the commerce interests of over 100 area businesses in and around Riverbank. It is a voluntary organization comprised of small and large businesses, professionals, and interested individuals who join together to advance the interests of the Riverbank community.
“This is the first of several luncheons we have planned this year to address local issues,” remarked Van Houten. “We want people to know that Riverbank is open for business, and with the continued support of our business community, the Chamber is alive and well.”
The luncheon will be held at the Antigua Event Center in Riverbank, 3200 Santa Fe St., from noon to 1:30 p.m.
Riverbank’s newly opened Togo’s in the Crossroads Shopping Center will be catering the event. There is a suggested $10 donation for lunch. If interested in attending, contact Jerry Van Houten at (209) 869-4541 or email@example.com to RSVP for the event.
