EVENT RECAP
C.O.R.E. Women Inaugural Meeting
This week, the Chamber held the inaugural meeting of the first Apple Valley Chamber women's group. This amazing group of ladies gathered to conceptualize their goals and intentions and they've got some great things in store. As a special treat, Carla Warner of the Warners' Stellian family came and spoke about her experience working in a male-dominated industry. This dynamic group of women intend to meet once a quarter, so stay tuned for updates in Apple Slices. A huge thank you to Jodi Kurtz - Chair of the C.O.R.E. Women's Group - for opening her home and hosting this event.
