Business Day is an annual IRMA event that brings employers face-to-face with leaders of Illinois government. Business Day is a great opportunity to participate in the legislative process and a special chance to speak directly with Members of the General Assembly while they are considering legislation that directly impacts your bottom line. The proposals effecting Illinois retailers are numerous. We need to band together to tell legislators that Illinois retailers cannot be the piggy bank of the State. Attending Business Day empowers you to join this conversation and stop government from becoming your silent business partner.

Register today!
