Mark your calendars for the next Partnership Luncheon on June 20th at a  NEW LOCATION, THE LANDING AT CHANDLERS. 

Thank you to the Leadership Rockwall Alumni for helping to organizing this month's Partnership Luncheon. 

Tickets are $30 for Chamber Partners, $40 for prospective Partners. Leadership Rockwall Alumni are offered a special price, please contact Dani at the Chamber Office for more information. 
Join us for the best hour of networking in Rockwall this Wednesday at Pier 101  from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm. 

Thank you to DFW Storm Solutions for sponsoring this week's Off The Clock Networking. 

Off The Clock Networking is open to all Chamber Partners and Prospective Partners. Bring plenty of business cards and a friend!

Take our quick, 5 minute survey!

In an effort to better serve you, the Rockwall area business community, we at the Chamber ask that you take five minutes out of your day, click the below link and take our survey. We will use the information gathered to improve our events, communications and professional development.

Join a distinguished network of leaders dedicated to making the Rockwall Area better!

The Leadership Rockwall program was created on the belief that community, just as any business or organization, requires strong leadership to improve and grow. Through this 9 month program, participants will meet with Rockwall's current leaders through panel discussions, presentations and experiences, while exploring the area's opportunities, needs and resources. 

Candidates will be selected primarily on the basis of prior leadership experience and/or the desire to become a more effective leader. 

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Ribbon Cutting last week at Ebby Halliday's newly renovated north side office!
We have several opportunities to help welcome New Partners to the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce in the coming weeks. See below or visit RockwallChamber.org/Events for more details. 

New to the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce? Haven't taken full advantage of your Chamber Partnership? Have a new employee that needs to learn about the Chamber? 

Attend Chamber Academy on June 15th where you'll find out who's who at the Chamber, what benefits come with Partnership and how to fully take advantage of all we have to offer. 

This event is free to attend with lunch provided, but seats are limited. To register, please visit RockwallChamber.org/Events. 

Our Senior Services Alliance held their first Baby Boomer Senior Expo this past Friday. Over 20 different senior based businesses gathered to offer employment and volunteer opportunities for those that are just past retirement, but not ready to give up living an active life. Breakout sessions were also featured on resume writing, interviewing and how to find the perfect job. 

Thank you to the SSA steering committee, especially Todd Felker, Nancy Starnes and Jerry Welch as well as Drew Jones and his team at the City of Rockwall Parks & Recreation Department.

Also thank you to the presenting sponsor of the BBSE, Lonestar Transfer, as well as silver sponsors Arbor House, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation and STAR Transit.

The Young Professionals of Rockwall have their next event on Tuesday, June 12th from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm at the Divine Peace Church event hall.
