    What’s in the works here at The Chamber

    Things at the Chamber offices have been pretty busy lately. Of course we’re always up to a lot, but right now we are on the cusp of many new and exciting plans. We can’t say much about everything yet, but I’ll outline just a few major projects below. Stay tuned to find out more about everything!

    New website: As you’re reading this, the all-new Chamber website has just gone live. It’s been almost 10 years since our page had a new look, and we’re thrilled to finally update our online presence to something that is a better user experience. We hope you like it!

    New program: Just last month, we held the launch event for our newest program, Professionals of Color. We’re invigorated by the energy around this new group and can’t wait to see how it affects our diverse professionals in the metro as they begin programming soon.

    New classes: We are approaching the finishing line for this fiscal year’s classes for both our Leadership and YEA! programs. Soon, recruiting will start and applications will open for next year’s groups. We’re so proud of what we’re seeing from our current crop already and are excited to continue this momentum.

    New membership efforts: With our newest team member joining in membership, we’re exploring new benefits and better ways to engage with you. Got ideas or feedback about your membership experience? We’d love to hear it! Please reach out and let’s talk.

    Speaker applications: We’ll be selecting more speakers for our events in the coming months. Please encourage the professionals you know that enjoy talking to a crowd and sharing their knowledge to apply! For the first time, we won’t be closing applications, so you won’t have to rush to make a deadline or wait until they open again later.

    YP Week: The last week of June, we’ll be hosting our first-ever Young Professionals Week. Our YPN committee and staff is diligently working on identifying speakers, venues, activities, programming and more.

    New initiative: You’ve probably heard us allude to our new and groundbreaking initiative with the EDC that will plan for the future of our community. In the next few months, we’ll reveal what exactly this means and looks like.

    10th Voices of Vision: That’s right, this year will be the tenth annual Voices of Vision! My own favorite event of the year, I’m determined to make this special anniversary event a special one. We have big plans in the works and I can’t wait to unveil this year’s keynote.

    Things won’t be slowing down here anytime soon. We’re committed to getting it all right to best serve each and every one of you. These plans should make our Chamber experience more diverse, strategic and future-focused. We know your industries are evolving, and so should ours. Through these exciting activities, we can help build a better and stronger community.
