Chamber Chat Show - Diversity in Business (Aug. 2008)

On this morning's Chamber Chat show, Chamber Board Chair Audrey Groteboer, and small business owner Mette Burkhalter (Renaissance Inspirations), discussed the Chamber's upcoming Diversity in Business Conference. Groteboer and Burkhalter went over the agenda for the day, which is meant to inform, inspire and connect new and existing women and minority entrepreneurs with valuable tools and resources needed in order to start or grow an existing business.

A highlight of the conference, which all Chamber members are encouraged to attend, is the keynote speaker - Marilyn D. Johnson, Vice President of Market Development at IBM Corporation - who will be speaking from Noon - 1 p.m. To register for the FREE event - which includes lunch, a business toolkit and educational sessions - click here!
