Legislative Cracker Barrels

The Chamber hosts legislative cracker barrels each legislative session. South Dakota Legislators representing Brown County and the surrounding area are invited to attend.

Ensuring that laws and legislation remain conducive to Aberdeen’s healthy and vibrant business climate is a top priority for the Aberdeen Area Chamber. Providing this type of structure for business leaders to communicate effectively with government is just one of the opportunities we provide our members and the Aberdeen community.

Cracker Barrel sessions are open to the public and offer an excellent opportunity for legislators and their constituents to publicly discuss issues of importance and stay up to date on top business, civic, and social priorities.

Special thanks to our sponsors:  AARP South Dakota, Aberdeen Development Corporation, Borns Group, Healthcare Plus Federal Credit Union, Helms & Associates, MIDCO, Northern State University, and Northwestern Energy.

The 2024 Legislative Cracker Barrels will be held from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm in the Kessler’s Champions Club, 2nd floor of the NSU Barnett Center on the following Saturday mornings:

  • January 27, 2024
