This time of year is usually a really exciting time for me professionally. Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to be plugged into a chamber networking group that I have come to love and adore: the Western Association of Chamber Executives. Wednesday through Friday of this week is their annual conference where hundreds of chamber professionals gather to connect, share and grow together and as we strengthen ourselves for our communities.
Last year the conference was held in Portland and this year it bounced from Sacramento to Las Vegas to eventually having to go virtual. Although I really am missing my peers who have become great friends to me, I’m thankful for technology and the ability to safely learn from the comfort of my home this week. Looking forward to sharing new ideas with our business community soon and taking another step forward in what I’m hoping is the year of recovery.
