29th Annual Awards Dinner

November 13, 2018 - 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Program Information

Join us for the largest annual gathering of business, government and community leaders as the Indiana Chamber celebrates outstanding business and legislative achievement. This year’s keynote speaker is the wonderful J.D. Vance!

J.D. Vance is an investor, innovator and author of the #1 New York Times best seller Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis. He is also a man with a passion for seeing Midwest states and their people – including Hoosiers – thrive. He will be returning to Indiana to share his keen insights and observations with attendees of the Indiana Chamber’s 29th Annual Awards Dinner.

A Middletown, Ohio native, Vance is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and a graduate of Ohio State University and Yale Law School. In early 2017, he joined as a partner in AOL founder Steve Case’s venture capital company, Revolution LLC, which concentrates on bolstering entrepreneurship and disruptive, high-growth companies outside of the sphere of Silicon Valley. Vance also returned home to Ohio to found Our Ohio Renewal, a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the state’s opioid crisis and bringing high-quality employment and educational opportunities to Ohioans.
