Illinois has the second highest property tax rates in the nation. Join a panel of tax experts and business representatives discussing proposed changes in Cook County property tax assessments and the impact it will have on commercial and industrial taxpayers.

Energy | May 5 from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM

In 2017, lawmakers revamped the energy marketplace and there is a significant energy debate ongoing at the Capitol. Zero carbon emissions. Electric vehicles. Nuclear power. Rate formulas. With manufacturers using one-third of our nation’s energy, join this panel of experts including the business community, utilities, and state government for an in-depth discussion on these key issues.
