November 2017

What's Happening At The Chamber

Can you believe it’s already November! The Chamber is busy with lots of events and activities during the holiday season.

In an effort to continue learning and growing to better serve our members, Alicia and Kris will start the month by attending the Illinois Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives fall conference in Oak Brook. This year’s theme is Excellence in Governance. Some of the Chamber Board members also will attend a session about Board Roles & Goals.

Member events will include four Ribbon Cutting/Receptions in the first half of November (see calendar on pg. 3) and our annual General Membership Meeting on November 16, where the volunteer of Board of Directors slate will be voted on (see pg. 2). Rerserve your seat today!

The Chamber Office will be closed Nov. 23 and 24 for the Thankgiving holiday, but we are busy planning a Shop Chamber program that will kick-off on Shop Small Saturday, Nov., 25, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Watch emails and the website for details.

We also are still looking for presenters and sponsors for next year’s Meet, Greet & Network schedule. If you’re interested in either, please email
