Greetings from your President
The last few weeks have been exciting for our Chamber!
Our Nov. 4 workshop about "The Art of Networking & Effective Messaging" gave us lots of useful info - see photos below and on our website. If you didn't attend, you'll have a chance to get in on more sales training at our Feb. 10, 2016 workshop: "How to Effectively Short Circuit the Sales Process."
Our 2015 Business Awards Dinner was another awesome event. Great award winners, great presenters, great room and decorations, and great food! See photos below and on our website. Thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for making everything - great!
We're getting excited about our upcoming Chamber Holiday Party on Dec. 9. This FREE event is the perfect way to cap off the strong year we've had in 2015. See more info below, and be sure to register soon on our website.
Please join me in welcoming David Denny as our Chamber's new Board Chair. David is owner/president of Tetra Management Services, and has served on the Boards of NWLSD and the YMCA, and as a Church Elder at Northwest Community Church. He has been a Chamber Board member since our 2014 start, and takes on the Chair position following Jim Lay's retirement. We wish them both success! 

See the video interviews of our seven 2015 Business Award winners, now added throughout our website.
In this season of thanksgiving, we are  thankful for our members. Happy Thanksgiving!
