Baseball (precisely): We are pleased to help promote a special exhibition game that the Zephyrs are hosting against the Miami Marlins on March 30. Buy a ticket for your chance to see the Zephyrs take on their parent team at Zephyr Field.
Hardball (without a doubt): Last Friday, Harrah’s and Manning’s hosted our board retreat for the incoming 2013 board of directors. It was an amazing turnout with over 60 people in attendance. Among the items discussed were fine-tuning our strategic plan and efforts to increase membership and improve communication. The debate was strong, but constructive. With 24 new board members, there were fresh ideas and new perspective combined with practical feedback from our veterans. I look forward to working with each of our board members in the coming year to build Relationships and increase Relevancy, Resulting in a stronger Chamber!
