2020 Annual Meeting Recap

We held our 2020 Annual Meeting Thursday, January 16, at Mendakota Country Club in Mendota Heights. This year's Annual Meeting focused on accomplishing our goals as a community with the "Power of Us." 

Rick King, Executive Vice President of Thomson Reuters, was our keynote speaker. Mr. King spoke about how Thomson Reuters embraces the "Power of Us" and how members of the DCR Chamber can embody the same mindset. Lin Nelson, DCR Chamber Board Immediate Past Chair, highlighted all we accomplished in 2019. While Andy Schriner, DCR Chamber Board Chair, spoke about the DCR Chambers goals for 2020.

Thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, and members for making the 2020 Annual Meeting a great success!
