Lansing Economic Club Takes its Show on the Road to BWL’s REO Town Cogeneration Plant

Only 50 Tickets Remain for this Historical Event!

The Lansing Regional Chamber Economic Club will take a summer break from its usual venue and format and hold a special forum on Monday, July 1 at which attendees will have a chance to tour the Lansing Board of Water and Light’s REO Town Headquarters and Cogeneration Plant. The special Economic Club session is scheduled as follows:

Economic Club "Going Commercial” Luncheon & Tour

11:30 a.m. - Event Opens for Networking

12:00 p.m. - Boxed Lunches are Enjoyed in Tent

12:30 p.m. - Remarks from J. Peter Lark, General Manager, LBWL

12:50 - 3:00 p.m. - Self Guided Walking Tours of the REO Town Cogeneration Plant, the new BWL Headquarters Building and the restored Grand Trunk Western Railroad Depot.

Members of the Lansing Regional Chamber are invited to be a part of this historic day as the BWL opens their first ever natural gas-fired steam and electric generation facility. This state-of-the-art plant gives the BWL - Michigan's largest municipally-owned utility - a more diversified fuel supply, a major win for the environment with lower greenhouse gas and other emissions, and a strong foundation upon which to boost economic development for Lansing's historic REO Town Neighborhood and the region.

The Chamber’s Economic Club is dedicated to promoting and stimulating economic growth through timely and insightful forums presented for personal and professional development. This is an add-on event to the Lansing Regional Chamber Economic Club speaker series and pre-registration is required. Tickets are $40/members and $300/table of 8 (includes lunch).
