The Gary Chamber of Commerce recently announced one of the featured speakers for the 3rd Annual World Civility Day – one of the Nation’s experts on Civility, Dr. Carolyn J. Lukensmeyer, Executive Director, National Institute for Civil Discourse. The organization works to reduce political dysfunction and incivility in the political system.
World Civility Day takes place on April 12, 2018. Full day workshops are at the Indiana Welcome Center and an Awards Dinner takes place the same evening at the Avalon Banquet Center in Merrillville.
“As the executive director of the Gary Chamber of Commerce and speaking on behalf of our board of directors, I am elated over the scope and success of the Community Civility Counts initiative,” said Chuck Hughes. “We could not have envisioned early on that CCC would now be recognized in several areas of the world. For that we celebrate with ‘World Civility Day’.”
