Please make plans to join us for ACI's 2024 Statehouse Day & Membership Meeting on Thursday, January 18, 2024!  We will start the day at the Statehouse with breakfast, where members will have the opportunity to meet with legislators. The second half of the day, members will head to the One America building for our annual meeting, where you'll hear from engaging speakers, leaders from state government and the legislature, and have the chance to see a live Indiana Week in Review panel!

As you know, there's strength in numbers. This is an important opportunity for ACI to make its presence known at the Statehouse and to show legislators that our industry is united with a strong presence and a strong voice as the legislative session gets underway.

How Does Economic Development Affect My Business?
Indiana has promoted and incentivized many economic development initiatives in recent years. We hear terms such as READI and LEAP regularly. How do these and other local and regional economic development projects affect ACI members and their businesses? Are there opportunities for agriculture and food and beverage companies? We will hear from economic development professionals to learn how our businesses can participate and be heard.
