Chamber Cup this Thursday!
We are gearing up for our new event, Chamber Cup, happening from 1-5PM this Thursday in Central Park!

Teams of four people will compete in a variety of contests and relays. Events will vary in skill set, but do not require athletic prowess. Some of the challenges include an office relay, cheer contest, jump rope, and more! Join us for the FUN!
 
We have just a few team spots available, so be sure to register soon - it will be an epic event you don't want to miss!
Special thanks to Gold Sponsor, First Citizens Bank
Breaking Glass Next Tuesday
Join us next Tuesday for our next Breaking Glass Leadership Series session. Mason City’s own Deadra Stanton will share her experience with "breaking the glass ceiling" as a woman in the business world. She will also touch on how the experience of testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this year has changed her perspective.

Deadra will speak from 8-9:30AM on Tuesday, September 22 on the third floor event room of the Commerce Center. A virtual Zoom option is also available.
