River Region Chamber plans leadership events

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, August 11, 2021

It’s hard to imagine that more than half of the year has already passed us. As we continue to advocate and provide resources to all members, you can be confident that we are continuing to serve the membership with value added benefits for upcoming networking and resource opportunities. Like you, we are also still navigating uncertain times. Our committees are continuing to pivot our services when necessary and will continue to do so from now until the rest of the year as needed to comply with COVID precautions. While this is still challenging for us, we want to take into consideration first and foremost everyone’s safety.

We are currently in the process of planning our 2021 Women’s Empowerment Session. Tentatively scheduled for November, we are hoping to map out a different format than last year. We are looking at a one-day event with a dynamic opening keynote speaker. We’d like to extend a sincere thanks to our Title Sponsor, Dow Chemical. Their support and the support of all of our sponsors is integral to our programming. As we finalize the planning, more details will be posted at www.riverregionchamber.org.

We’re also excited to be kicking off the next class for Leadership River Region. Congratulations to our recent graduates! We are grateful for each of you and excited to see how the training you received will help you in your roles. Applications are currently open for the Class of 2022. For more information on applying to the program, please visit www.riverregionchamber.org/leadership-river-region.

We are grateful to each of you for your continued support and commitment to your local Chamber. We look forward to being able to reschedule some of the events we’ve had to postpone but will do our best to provide you with business building tools to help you navigate through these times.

Be sure to take advantage of our job postings and hot deals. The Chamber’s website is a great marketing tool to help expand your reach. All you need to access your benefits is your member login. If you don’t remember your login, you can call the Chamber at 985-359-9777 or email admin@riverregionchamber.org.

We look forward to working with you in the coming months, and please reach out to us if you need anything.
