34 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 30 - June 5, 2003 State chamber retail conference set for June 18- The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware Re- tail Council are linking retailers and legislators at the End-Of-Ses- sion Legislative Brunch and An- nual Retail Conference, June 18, at the Dover Sheraton in Dover. The joint event gives the two groups the opportunity to share their issues, efforts and goals. Legislators and retailers will be joined by business leaders and elected and appointed officials at the brunch and conference, which is sponsored by Coventry Health Care of Delaware, ShopRites of Delaware, the Delaware Econom- ic Development Office and Yel- low Book. This event is modeled after the successful Spring Leg- islative Brunch and Annual Man- ufacturing Celebration, which at- tracted more than 250 attendees in April. The retail conference begins at 8:30 a.m., with networking and tabletop exhibits. A highlight of the morning is the keynote ad- dress by Elizabeth Treanor,-Na- tional Retail Federation (NRF) government affairs counsel. As a member of NRF's.lobbying team, Treanor's primary legislative re- sponsibilities include banking, bankruptcy reform, legal reform, sales-tax simplification, technolo- gy and consumer privacy, among other issues. Following Treanor's address there will be a panel dis- cussion on employee fraud. The brunch immediately fol- lows the retail conference and will feature speakers Senate President Pro Tempore Thurman Adams and Speaker of the House Terry Spence, who will discuss their legislative agendas for the re- mainder of the General Assembly. After the brunch, retailers and other state chamber members will visit Legislative Hall and meet with selected officials. State "The retail experience is so in- tegrally woven into the fabric of our daily lives that it is easy to take this valuable sector of the economy for granted," said state chamber President and CEO Suzanne C. Moore. "How often as we go about our daily routine of stopping by the supermarket or drugstore or contemplate the pur- chase of clothes, cars and comput- ers, do we stop and think about the contribution that retailers make to both our daily lives and the economy? That's one of the goals of the End-of-Session Leg- chamber adds islative Brunch and Retail Confer- ence - to turn the spotlight on Delaware's retail industry and to give our retail members another opportunity to interact with legis- lators." Registration is $35 for state chamber members and $45 for nonmembers. Registrants can at- tend one or both portions of the program. Sponsorships and table- top exhibits are available.
