I'm back from a week in Arizona with some of the best in my business after attending my favorite annual conference hosted by the Western Association of Chamber Executives. I am so grateful for these experiences that push me personally and professionally to develop, educate and elevate myself. I'm especially grateful for my amazing Board of Directors who continue to keep these experiences worked into our budgets, knowing the value of these investments.
I am proud to announce that during this conference I was appointed to an Emerging Leaders Council, hosted an educational session on DEI Business Strategies, was awarded an Accredited Chamber Executive designation, saw many friends receive recognitions of their own, met some awesome NHL coaches and players, and had more fun than imaginable with my colleagues who are also my good friends! My work week obviously blended easily into a stellar trip allowing for a personal reset button to be activated. I am so thrilled that my gains directly impact our community as I continue to serve through my role at the chamber.
