The Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce and its Government Affairs Committee are introducing a new virtual event series called Industry Nights. Industry Nights will allow specific industries in Kittitas County to speak with their Legislators, Senator Judy Warnick, Representative Tom Dent, and Representative Alex Ybarra in a round-table form of discussion. 


Those attending Industry Nights will be able to speak to the Legislators about their particular industry, what their plans are for 2021, how COVID-19 has affected their business, and where they see their industry heading. 


Industry Nights will kick off with a Zoom and Facebook live on February 17 at 5:30 p.m. with Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce CEO Amy McGuffin introducing this new program. Each Industry Nights event will occur every fourth Wednesday (starting in April, previously every third Wednesday) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Zoom from March until November. The series will then end with our annual Legislative Day in December.
