Aurora’s three chambers of commerce are collaborating to host Mayor Richard C. Irvin’s first State of the City address next month.
The Aurora Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Aurora Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Quad County African American Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Aurora, will host the 2018 State of the City Address at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3 at the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd. in downtown Aurora.
The event also marks the one year anniversary of Mayor Irvin’s historic election in 2017, and the 50th year commemoration of the Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination in April 1968.
“It certainly has been a pivotal year in our city and country, and the importance of this moment serves as a catalyst for change,” said Mayor Richard C. Irvin. “We have laid a strong foundation while strengthening our local, regional and national connections. As we continue to build Aurora together, we will capitalize on the renewed sense of energy, optimism and unity that has become palpable around the city. From economic development and education to public safety and community participation, there’s something happening here that is positioning the City of Lights to shine even brighter.”
The 2018 State of the City address - One Year, One Aurora - will bring the community together for a review of the past year and a preview of the year ahead, including many exciting announcements.
A change in luncheon format of past addresses, the 2018 State of the City address will be held in the evening at the Paramount Theatre to allow for greater community involvement.
“We are excited about the new format which allows our three chambers to collaborate in a very substantive way,” Chamber leaders said in a joint statement. “Hundreds of members of the business community have already responded to our announcement and are excited to be in attendance.”
The 2018 State of the City Address is free and open to the public.
