The public is invited and encouraged to attend each forum. School board elections will be held September 12, 2017. Education is a vital component of our local economy that drives business vitality and quality of life. Everyone is reminded of the importance of these elections to the future of our community.

Both forums are hosted by the Marion Chamber of Commerce and Marion Economic Development Corp (MEDCO).
