Join us in welcoming new teachers, professors and administrators from La Porte, New Prairie, South Central, LaCrosse, Wanatah and Westville public schools and La Lumiere, Brown Mackie College, Ivy Tech State College, and Purdue University North Central.

This is a unique opportunity to welcome new residents to La Porte from the education world and connect them to the business community.

"We are thrilled to welcome this group of exceptional teachers into our community," said Mike Seitz, President of the Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce.

All Chamber members and their employees are invited to attend the event, which includes a buffet lunch. Registration will begin at 11:00 a.m. and lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. Please complete registration by Friday, July 25th. Cancellations received after July 25th are non-refundable.

Chamber members are encouraged to sponsor one or more of the new educators for the luncheon. The cost is $25 per person. Each business person will be seated with their sponsored educator(s). For an additional $30, your company name will be listed as an event sponsor in the press releases, table placards and announced during lunch.

The Chamber wants to provide you with the opportunity to introduce your business to the new educators and will be providing all new educators with “welcome” packets at the luncheon. Business people wishing to acquaint new educators with their companies are asked to supply 55 gift items (i.e. pens, rulers, clips, coupons, brochures, etc.) to the Chamber by Friday, July 25th.
