LEOMINSTER — The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce will host a legislative and candidates reception on Sept. 19 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Chocksett Inn, 59 Laurelwood Road, in Sterling.

The event is intended to offer the region with an upscale networking event that connects business and community leaders with the region’s elected officials, as well as those seeking public office.

“This is a great opportunity for our business and community leaders, as well as our public officials, to gather for an evening of networking and collegial discussion,” said Roy Nascimento, chamber president and CEO. “We look forward to joining our legislators at a unique venue like the Chocksett Inn.”

The reception is one of the Chamber’s premier events of the season, with more than 125 federal, state and local elected officials invited. Mount Wachusett Community College is the premier sponsor for the event.

“At Mount Wachusett Community College, we understand the importance of engaging with the region’s business and legislative communities. These connections and insights help guide the college in various areas such as programming and outreach,” said MWCC President James Vander Hooven. “It is vital for our region’s business leaders, legislators and policy-makers to meet and network so that they can engage and learn from each other. I am happy to support this important event.”
