Rodenroth Motors and Hospice of the EUP Business After 5
We had a great time at the combined Business After 5 with Rodenroth Motors and Hospice of the EUP on January 20th. The lobby of Rodenroth Motors is a great big lit open space perfect for networking and mingling and thier staff is always so welcoming and nice. A beyond delicious Italian dinner was prepared by Bob Autore who now works at Rodenroth Motors but previously the Angios Restaurant of Sault Ste Marie. The meal was served complete with salad dessert and Mary Jo Duval's famous charcuterie board. We had a amazing turnout and would just like to thank everyone who was involved with setting up this Business After 5. It sure was a fun one.

Chamber Board of Directors Openings
The Sault Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors currently has one open seat available. The board meets the second Friday of each month at 7:30am in the morning here at the Chamber Office board room. Applicants can find a application here. To turn in your application or to discuss more about the board and the roles as a board member feel free to call or email:
Executive Director Tony Haller.
The Sault Area Chamber of Commerce is looking to add some new Ambassadors to the Club. Ambassadors meet once a month on the first Tuesday of the month here at the Sault Area Chamber of Commerce. We discuss local events, activities, and news. We share what is learned at meetings with our businesses and the community. Ambassadors are also invited to all the Ribbon Cuttings of the Chamber to show support for new businesses in the community. Dues for Ambassadors are $25 per year but the amount made off of dues is donated to the organization of the Ambassador Club's choosing after a vote at the end of every year. The donation usually ends up being in the $500 range. Anyone can be a Ambassador just as long as you own or work for a business that is a Chamber Member. This is a great way to keep your business "in the loop" as to what's going on in our community.
If you have any other questions please feel free to give the Chamber a call at 906-632-3301 or email director@saultstemarie.org
