Melissa Proffitt Quoted in Indy Chamber Release: "Indy Chamber Elects 2019 Board Leadership, Endorses Legislative Priorities"

Melissa ProffittIce Miller partner Melissa Proffitt was quoted in the Indy Chamber press release, "Indy Chamber Elects 2019 Board Leadership, Endorses Legislative Priorities."

The press release included: 

The Indy Chamber held its annual membership meeting today, electing its 2019 volunteer leadership and approving an ambitious legislative agenda for next year’s budget-writing session of the Indiana General Assembly.  Lisa Schlehuber (Elements Financial) will chair the Chamber in 2019, serving with Vice-Chair Dennis Murphy (IU Health), Treasurer Melissa Proffitt (Ice Miller) and Secretary Jim Birge (Faegre Baker Daniels), with a Board of Directors representing a broad cross-section of regional employers.

The Indy Chamber also leads regional and Marion County economic development through its Indy Partnership and Develop Indy affiliates.  In helping attract new business and encourage expansion among existing companies, the Chamber has identified productive reuse of ‘brownfields’  – sites with environmental issues, often from former industrial operations – as a key goal, and will advocate for a new redevelopment tax credit.

“There are well over a thousand brownfield sites across Indiana, in rural and urban areas alike,” noted Melissa Proffitt, who chairs the Chamber’s Business Advocacy Committee along with her service as an Executive Committee officer.  “This means more than a thousand opportunities to rebuild our tax base, if we can accelerate the regulatory process and incentivize new investment and employment.”
