    The Greater North Dakota Chamber and Governor Dalrymple will again partner to host

    the Governor’s Business Forum, April 15, at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.

    The Governor’s Business Forum was created to provide a platform for business leaders

    The Forum will kick off with lunch and an address and facilitated discussion with

    Governor Dalrymple. The afternoon will include presentations and workshops focused

    on taxes, workforce and education – three issues that will be a high priority during the

    upcoming legislative session.

    The Forum will conclude after dinner with two exciting presentations. The first is the

    presentation of the Greater North Dakotan Award to Mr. Frank Larson. Mr. Larson is a

    valued North Dakota businessman and philanthropist, and we are excited to present

    him with the Chamber’s highest honor.

    Following the award presentation, there will be a keynote address from Mr. Whit Ayres

    of North Star Opinion. Whit Ayres is a leading Washington, D.C., political consultant

    with over 30 years of experience in polling and survey research for high profile political

    campaigns and associations. Mr. Ayres will talk about the economic and political

    landscape of our country and how it will impact North Dakota.
