CW Leadership Communication - Job Fair, Golf, Leadership Institute & More
As I’ve had the opportunity to meet with businesses, I continue to be impressed by the scrappiness and fortitude of our business leaders as they continue to make things happen. Whether it’s a shortage of employees, an increase in pricing and availability of critical supply chain, or continued engagement with keeping employees and customers safe, our businesses continue to morph, survive, and for many excel. ChamberWest continues to be a resource and support organization for business success. I’m excited to announce that ChamberWest is hiring a new Director of Business Development. If you know a positive, energetic, people-loving, organized individual interested to joining our ChamberWest team to help us grow membership, please have them reach out to me for additional information on this exciting opportunity.
For business owners who feel like they are on a hamster wheel running their business, please consider attending the Professional Development session on Tuesday, August 17th from 11:30 – 1:00 pm titled “ Are you Running Your Business or is Your Business Running You”. This luncheon event features a panel of small business owners who have embraced a program to help them effectively run their business.

The ChamberWest Golf Tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, August 18 at Stonebridge Golf Club and I’m excited to announce that we have just a few sponsorship opportunities left and the foursomes are now sold out. The tournament will have 180 golfers for an 18 hole scramble spread out over 27 holes with a shot gun start, breakfast, and an awards luncheon. We are also looking for awesome raffle items for the tournament as well. For the few remaining sponsorships or to donate raffle items, you can reach out to staff for more information.
