LVEDC presents the 2020 Congressional Forum which will be held virtually on Thursday, October 8th at 4PM. The event is not meant to be a debate as much as a sharing of thoughts and ideas in response to questions from the stakeholders in economic growth and job creation in the Lehigh Valley. Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Susan Wild and her Republican challenger Lisa Scheller are confirmed to participate in the forum. This forum provides the candidates an opportunity to share their positions on issues related to the regional economy, jobs, and the workforce.

This event will be on Facebook live and then live on the LVEDC website until the election.
