Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce

The Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce has released the below information:

Fort Wayne, IN - Allen County and the City of Fort Wayne recently passed separate ordinances banning smoking in public places beginning June 1. With this in mind, a Smoke-Free Workplace Workshop will be held at the Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce, 826 Ewing Street, on two upcoming March dates: this Thursday, March 22, at 6 p.m., and next Tuesday, March 27, at 7:30 a.m.

The workshop is being presented by Tobacco Free Allen County in partnership with the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health and the Chamber to help local business leaders develop and implement tobacco control or cessation policies for their staff. Workshop topics will include:

The economic implications of smoking in Indiana;
Highlights of the Surgeon General's Report on Second-Hand Smoke; and
A panel discussion with local business leaders who have developed tobacco-free workplaces.

The Chamber currently is accepting reservations for the Smoke-Free Workplace Workshops. Reservations can be made by calling Heather Neilson at (260) 424-1435, Ext. 241, or by e-mailing hneilson@fwchamber.org, and indicating which date you plan to attend (March 22 or March 27).

I find it interesting that local government officials have passed a smoking ban that many local business owners think will badly hurt their businesses and yet our local Chamber of Commerce is offering a seminar like the one described above...

I think The Chamber of Commerce should have a forum that discusses the negative impact the smoking ban will have on certain business owners in Fort Wayne...

I think the Chamber of Commerce should have a forum that discusses how important property rights are to The United States of America and to businesses in general...

I must be dreaming...
