Check the photo above to see the newest member to our Chamber Staff – he’s young but a real cutie! JJ Scott is the newest addition to Ashley’s family. Congrats Ashley, but I have a feeling that shortly you are going to really have your hands full!
Miscellaneous news: We had 33 people at Tuesday’s networking breakfast
. I’m excited to see our group continuing to grow.
Speaking of networking, our Chamber has been invited to attend a new West Valley networking group called Networking 360
. The event is next Thursday, February 16th at Headquarters Bar, Grill and Sushi across from the Harkins Theater in P83
, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
They already have over 30 people in their group and are looking for more to join. Peoria Chamber members will get in FREE
. Do me a favor and if you build your business by networking please check this event out and give us a report. They’re looking to do more with our Chamber so I would greatly value your opinion.
A BIG THANK YOU to Rosemary Rulka from Rulka Consulting
, she stepped in to help us out when the US Department of Labor had to cancel on us. Her talk on Prop 206 was very interesting and loaded with information on all the things small businesses need to know to make sure they do not get fined for being out of compliance. Rosemary is an excellent HR consultant so if you’re not sure about your business being compliant, give her a call. You can find her information in our Chamber Directory.
Our next Mixer is February 22nd at Slicks Garage from 5:00pm to 7:00pm
. This is a very fun place and I love the old Harley in the middle of the room. More details in the right-hand column. Slicks has a terrific outdoor patio
and with the way our weather has been, it will be a beautiful evening.
If you notice a new smiling face in our office and at our events that would be Johnny Cash
(yes, that’s his real name). Johnny has joined us as our new Membership Consultant.
His job is to call on potential new members and help our existing members take advantage of the great benefits we have that come with being a member of the Peoria Chamber.
