On Wednesday, March 30, 2022 IRMA and the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association will once again host Business Day in Springfield. This year’s event will be held earlier given the accelerated legislative session schedule.


Join us for the largest gathering of employers at the Capitol! Business Day is your chance to speak face-to-face with lawmakers about legislation impacting retail. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to learn from panels regarding important issues facing our state. 

It is vital that Illinois policy makers continue to hear the voice of the employer community, and we need your support and involvement to make Business Day possible. Please consider participating as a Co-Host ($2,000) or as a Sponsor ($1,250) for this year’s Business Day activities. 

Business Day begins the luncheon with a keynote. Additionally, this year’s attendees will hear from various policy makers. As always, the day will end with an evening reception. However, due to the earlier date, this year the reception will be at the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel (701 E Adams Street – Springfield IL) complete with food, drink and live music. From 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. you are likely to run into members of the Assembly, Governor’s office, staff, colleagues and friends.
