2023 Legislative Coffees scheduled

The Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce will host three Legislative Coffees during the month of February, providing an avenue for citizens to connect directly with their legislators.

The dates of the Coffees correspond to key dates in the legislative calendar. The three sessions will be held on Feb. 4, 11 and 25. Each event runs from 10-11:45 a.m. and will take place at The Hub Auditorium on the campus of Southeast Technical College.

The Legislative Coffees provide a forum for citizens to hear about current bills and communicate with their elected officials—a vital aspect of forming legislation. Citizens can also learn more about legislators’ positions, ask questions and formulate a better understanding of the impact that a prospective law might have upon them.

The Sioux Falls League of Women Voters will provide a volunteer moderator for each event. The moderator will provide pace and organization to the session, as well as take written questions from the audience. Questions can also be submitted in advance by emailing

Sponsors of the 2023 Legislative Coffees include AARP South Dakota, the Sioux Falls League of Women Voters and the Sioux Falls Education Association. The event can also be watched via livestream on the Chamber’s Facebook page.
