Message from the CEO As we begin the summer, it’s a good time to look back at the first half of 2017. This year has been filled with numerous opportunities and significant accomplishments on behalf of our members, Q5 investors, and the community at-large.
We hosted several can’t-miss, major events and professional development opportunities. The Annual Gala, The State of the City Luncheon, Business Connections, Small Business Awards, the John Maxwell Live2Lead Leadership Development event, Refresh Leadership in partnership with Express Employment Professionals, and our recent Cyber Security Seminar. Each provided significant community engagement and information, expanded business opportunities, and venues for professional development and building your network. The Chamber conducted a survey to identify existing business ridership practices and perceptions regarding air service to and from Springfield’s Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport. The survey, which focused on business travel, revealed perceptions did not match the real data. In summary, the growth and performance of Springfield’s air service, including the decline in late and cancelled flights, led us to ask local businesses and organizations to make a pledge or commitment to use the
Springfield airport for all business travel when economically feasible. The “True Cost Calculator” on the airport website will help you identify the true cost of your travel compared to competing airports. To date, nearly 40 businesses have made the commitment. The full survey results, as well as a commitment form, are available at gscc.org/spisurvey. We have and continue to work with LRS and Solomon Colors regarding the extension of the Springfield-Sangamon County Enterprise Zone, which will provide each with significant incentives, leading to cost savings, increased business, and job growth. The Chamber has been working with the company EmberClear in the site selection process for a potential combined cycle natural gas power plant in Sangamon County (see below). Currently, the company has an option on property for a potential site and we are assisting them through the process of an enterprise zone extension. If completed, the project would result in an estimated capital investment of over $1 billion in Sangamon County. As you can see, the first half of 2017 has been significant for our members, investors, and our community. I am sure the remainder of the year will be just as significant.
Chris Hembrough President and CEO The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce In this edition, you will learn more about ELEVATE Springfield - our new young professionals program, ‘Shoes & Brews, the September Elected Officials Reception, and the CQI Energy co-op, our new member benefit program. As always, thank you for your investment, membership, and partnership, as together we work to enhance our members’ success and advance our economy.
EmberClear power plant – Q5 business attraction update Sangamon County is in the running for attracting a combined cycle natural gas power plant with an estimated capital investment of over $1 billion. Chamber staff have been assisting the company since January 2017 in the site selection process, connecting them with property owners, public officials, and other interested parties to move the potential business attraction effort forward. After meeting with a number of Sangamon County property owners, EmberClear now has an option on an 80acre site adjacent to the Ameren substation on the south side of Pawnee. In order to move the process forward, the company asked for the property to be rezoned from agricultural to industrial. They also requested an extension of the Springfield – Sangamon County Enterprise Zone, which requires an approval process by the Sangamon County Board, the Springfield City Council, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity 2
(DCEO). The extension of the enterprise zone would provide relief from sales taxes for all construction materials purchased in Illinois, along with other incentives. On May 9, 2017, the Sangamon County Board unanimously approved the rezoning request and the extension of the enterprise zone. The Springfield City Council will soon consider the request for the enterprise zone extension. If approved by the City Council, it will then go to DCEO for approval. If and when the approval process is completed, EmberClear will begin the next steps to pursue development of the power plant. This capital investment of $1 billion would create between 400 – 800 construction jobs over 28 months, with an estimated 250 – 400 projected spin-off jobs (according to economic impact and forecasting calculated by Jobs EQ, an economic development analytics tool). The project would create 30 – 40 permanent jobs with an annual wage of
ALWAYS BUY CHAMBER
$80,000 - $90,000 equaling $2.4 million $3.6 million in annual payroll from the power plant operations. This does not include spin-off jobs for suppliers, contractors, maintenance, and other opportunities for Sangamon County businesses which will be involved on an ongoing basis. Many, if not most, of these dollars would be spent in our community, resulting in an even greater, continuous economic impact. Lastly, while property taxes in Sangamon County are trending lower, this investment would provide a substantial boost in revenue to the Pawnee School District, Sangamon County, the Pawnee Township, Lincoln Land Community College, the Pawnee Fire Protection District and other taxing bodies. The property tax impact would be very significant for our community. If the enterprise zone extension is fully approved, The Chamber will continue to assist EmberClear as needed.
Utility savings now available to Chamber members
The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce is offering a new benefit to its member investors that could potentially save them hundreds or thousands of dollars in annual utility costs through a commercial energy cooperative (co-op) managed by CQI Associates. The benefit is only available to Chamber members who receive their electric and/or gas services through Ameren. The co-op leverages the power of a large group to negotiate a lower commercial electric and/or gas rate that a single business could not secure on its own. CQI Associates has 16 years of industry experience. Today, more than 88 percent of large businesses in Illinois have switched to a third-party energy supplier to reduce costs.
The percentage is much lower for small-tomedium sized businesses because of a lack of purchasing power, leverage, support and expertise. Large businesses use enough power to negotiate favorable rates. Small-tomedium sized businesses do not consume as much power as these large companies, and are not offered the best rates in the marketplace. CQI Associates aggregates the kilowatt-hour (kWh) load of the commercial accounts, which reduces the overall cost. The Chamber partnership with CQI puts small-to-medium sized businesses on the same playing field as its larger counterparts. The benefits your business or organization receives when you join the commercial energy co-op are as follows.
Signing up for the service is easy and free to members.
Co-op members can expect to save about the equivalent of their July electrical bill and/or their February natural gas bill.
Members receive a fixed rate on electric and natural gas bills â€” guaranteed not to change during your contract term.
Deregulation has sparked healthy competition. As the energy market changes in the future, the co-op will negotiate on the membersâ€™ behalf.
The co-op offers options to obtain up to 100 percent clean, renewable, wind-powered electricity.
The Chamberâ€™s mission to enhance our membersâ€™ success and advance our economy is met through programs like these that help businesses reduce their overhead and allocate those dollars to other needs or their bottom line.

Leadership Springfield graduates 31st class Over the past 31 years, more than 850 participants have completed Leadership Springfield. Last month, the 31st class graduated from the program. Mayor Jim Langfelder, Class of 1993, spoke to the graduates about the importance of leadership and being involved in the community.
The 12th Annual Distinguished Alumni Award was presented to Gwenn Klingler, a graduate from the Class of 1987. This award is given to an alumnus or alumnae of the program whose achievements in business and community reveal prominent leadership skills. In 1995, Klingler won a hard-fought race for the Illinois House of Representatives for the 100th District. During her 8-year tenure, she worked hard as an advocate for children and was the chief sponsor for the Child Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, the Foster Parents’ Bill of Rights and was also the spokesperson for the Children and Youth Committee. The application for the upcoming class (beginning September

Seminar held on cyber security The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce held a Cyber Security Seminar on May 3 to help make local businesses aware of the ever-increasing threats of cyberattacks. The vulnerability of small businesses to a cyber-attack is increasing due to the fact that most don’t have a plan in place to protect themselves. The amount of damage caused by individual attacks is climbing into the multi-millions. The chances of a company falling victim to an attack continues to rise. Businesses of all sizes need to more effectively manage the ongoing risks.
Local law firm Heyl Royster was the presenting sponsor of the event. Attorney Mike Kokal provided an overview of the legal and regulatory landscape. He discussed the introduction of new laws and provided examples of new lawsuits involving cyber security. In addition, a special agent from the FBI explained the different types of cyber security threats that business owners are facing. TROXELL was a supporting sponsor of the event. Michelle Fesi, a representative from Chubb, provided information on cyber risks and insurance. Hillier Moving Ad 1-2 H (Fall 2012).pdf Over 60 Chamber members attended and

Business assistance forTHE minority businesses BOULEVARD TOWNHOMES The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce partners with The Springfield Project (TSP) to carry out the Diversity Advancement strategy of its Quantum Growth Initiative (Q5). We recognize that a diverse business community is critical to our local economy and quality of life.
Management and technical assistance to minority business enterprises is vital to their success, and over the past several months, we have partnered with TSP and the Springfield Black Chamber of Commerce (SBCC), who have provided training programs and events geared towards building careers, developing entrepreneurs and business networking. A host of partners participated, including The Springfield Project, Forward Planning Inc., Lincoln Land Community College (Student Life Office), American Heart Association and other local businesses. Activities included a “bootcamp” with topics focused on Leadership, Networking, Surviving the Workplace and Career Advancement. The goal was for participants to leave with a clear plan of action based on a better understanding
