By attending the Chamber’s Leadership Luncheon Series, you will build important connections, and share with fellow Chamber members about the services your business provides. People are more comfortable working with businesses that they can identify with, and maybe another member knows someone who could use your services. Word-of-mouth referrals are always valuable.


This Series is designed to bring keynote speakers and panel experts, including regional and state leaders, to you. This is an opportunity to gain information on timely topics that are continually shaping our region’s economy and impacting your business or organization. Business leaders strive to be “in the know” of the “who, what, and why” of where our region, state, and nation are going. Knowledge is power.


We believe this Series will inspire you to take what you learn and incorporate it into your own business practice. Individually and collectively, Chamber members are powerful leaders. This Series is designed to expand your influence and be the change you desire to be.


Change is inevitable. You will hear from leaders who have led through tremendous challenges and opportunities. You also possess the power to move your business forward with confidence, build important relationships, and impact your community and the world around you. Let’s go!
