The Elgin Area Chamber connects our members with the information, opportunities, and people from across the political spectrum that makes a difference to your business with "Legislative Brew." Sometimes we'll meet for coffee, other times we just might meet for a "brew." In any case, EAC will bring together a mix of individuals engaged in government and the policy discussions facing our community, region, and state in for a cup and conversation.
