SBN Roundtable – Unpacking the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
SBN’s Business Roundtable is an intentionally intimate members-only conversation created to connect local independent businesses, elected officials, and other key decision-makers in the city, region, and state.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provides a historic investment in our nation and specifically within our region – more than 200 projects are anticipated to start and continue this year in the five-county Philadelphia region. The law itself promotes the creation of good infrastructure and equitable workforce development to ensure that families have access to good-paying jobs. Yet, what level of funding may come to the region, and how will it affect our local, values-driven business community? How might you be able to take advantage of future infrastructure law spending?
Join Anuj Gupta, Chief of Staff to Congressman Dwight Evans, and a team of experts to learn more about the package and what it could mean for your business and the region. Guests can expect a presentation, with conversation and Q&A moderated by SBN's Executive Director, Devi Ramkissoon. This program is virtual and will be recorded.
