Hello Chamber Members,
What a beautiful time of the year that’s approaching. As I write this note to you all I can hear are the melodious drops of rain on my roof, and feel the bite of the cool, fall air when I walk outside. This time of year, is always a promise of new growth and life in my eyes as we see the greenery from summer change to vibrant fall shades before hibernating under a blanket of snow through the winter to emerge bigger, stronger, and more wonderful than before.

Much like the seasons change, your Chamber changes as the year progresses to grow bigger, stronger, and even more wonderful than the previous year! We take each event we host or attend and learn so we can grow and provide more value to our members. While we may not have been able to host as many events that we have hosted in the past. We were still able to learn and grown from the events we were able to provide. The Chamber staff and Board members are already deep into planning new, exciting events for 2022, and we can’t wait to see what you all think.
Join us November 5th, for the 2021 Women in Business Conference hosted by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce at Elements in Naperville. Pre-registration information is available on the Lisle Area Chamber site. Join us on November 11th starting at 4:30pm for a Ribbon Cutting at Sebold Capital Management in Lisle. Full information can be found on the Chamber website. Also, don’t forget about our Multi-Chamber Virtual Network event on November 16th from 12:00pm – 1:30pm. Registration is available on the Chamber website.
The timeless Lisle tradition of ‘The Turkey Trot Tune-Up 5K’ is returning for another year of family health, fitness, and FUN! Dust off those running shoes and get movin’ with us on Sunday, November 21st. Registration starts at 7:30am with the race starting at 9am. Registration can be completed online for a pre-registration discount on the chamber website. I hope to see you all at the 5k!
Have a great fall and Happy Thanksgiving!
