Gen. Stan McChrystal featured speaker at chamber dinner

INDIANAPOLIS — A special salute to the military and the Hoosier companies that work closely with these heroes will be part of the Indiana Chamber’s Annual Awards Dinner on Nov. 12, the day after Veteran’s Day. Additionally, as is tradition, Indiana’s Business Leader of the Year, Government Leader of the Year and Community of the Year (previously announced as Bedford) will be recognized that evening.

Special tributes are planned along with a presentation from Gen. Stan McChrystal. The retired four-star general led the top secret Joint Special Operations Command in Iraq during the Persian Gulf wars and was the chief commander of American forces in Afghanistan. McChrystal will share some of his battle lessons and experiences along with best practices for organizational leadership that also hold true for business.

The event takes place at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. Event start time is 5 p.m. for the reception and 6:30 p.m. for the dinner. This is the largest gathering of business, community and government leaders in the state.

Companies also can honor service personnel by sponsoring a table (www.indianachamber.com/ad) for local military members.

The annual dinner is presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Ivy Tech Community College is the speaker sponsor, and Hirons Advertising + Public Relations is the speaker reception sponsor.

Tables of 10 are $2,250 for gold seating, $1,650 for silver seating and $1,200 for standard seating. Individual tickets are $120 each. Tickets can be purchased online (www.indianachamber.com/ad) or by calling (800) 824-6885.
