Colerain Chamber Newsletter | March 2017 | Issue 22
Chamber President Debra Stonehill
A lot's going on at the Chamber! Many of you learned some new LinkedIn sales tools at our March Leadership Breakfast; see photos below. We had fun at our Third Thursday Networking events in March and February, and at the Women's Networking Lunches. Those photos are here too.
The wheels are turning in preparation for our annual Hometown Hero Dinner Gala. This year's Gala is Thursday, April 27 when we'll honor Bill Rumpke Sr. for his long-time partnership with the Colerain community, as well as Greater Cincinnati. This is a big night you won't want to miss! Invite your friends, family, and associates to show our appreciation for all that Mr. Rumpke has done. See below for how to get involved!
