Dear Chamber
Members,

As we battle the resurgence of winter weather, it can be easy to fall into the routine of hunkering in and disconnecting, but your Chamber is still hard at work creating opportunities for you and your business. Our Young Professionals group is gearing up for two events in March. We will be hosting a Family Game and Movie Night at Concordia University on Saturday, March 7 th and a St. Patrick’s Day-themed event at Edgewater Golf Course on Tuesday, March 10 th , 2020.

In addition, your Chamber staff will be attending the Governor's Conference on Tourism taking place in Madison from March 15 th -17 th , 2020. This state conference provides the opportunity for them to network and find new ways to continue promoting tourism in our our community and working to drive more traffic to your businesses. Past conferences have successfully provided ideas that have grown into community initiatives, and we are excited to see what this years conference brings. 

Finally, I would like to encourage you to consider attending the upcoming OED and Joint Chamber program Keeping Employees Healthy - Body and Mind- Lunch & Learn on March 11. More details can be found below.



Sincerely ,

Dustin Beck
Grafton Chamber President
