President's Corner

Tonight’s the Night!  Make sure you come by Slick’s Garage after work today for our Chamber Mixer.  It’s from 5:00 to 7:00pm and our Host Raina is planning on putting out some tasty munchies and offering us Happy Hour Drink Specials.  This is a fantastic family owned business, so come join us and support them.

There’s a new business here in Peoria called Doggie District Pet Resort located at 8028 W. Thunderbird.  They are having a Grand Opening Celebration & Ribbon Cutting this coming Saturday (2/25) with all kinds of pet related exhibits and fun things.  I’ll be there at 10:30am with Peoria Councilman, Mike Finn, to do the ribbon cutting. Why not grab your dog and come join us?

Another big event coming up Saturday is the 24th Annual Peoria Diamond Club Spring Training Charity Game at the Peoria Sports Complex.  Through the generosity of the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners, the Peoria Diamond Club each year is the recipient of all proceeds from this one game.  The money raised supports grants the Diamond Club award to local organizations who provide programs to assist children throughout the West Valley.  If you only make one spring training game this season, make this one!  Game time is at 1:10pm, so come out and enjoy a great day at the ballpark and know that your support is making a difference in someone’s life.

If you have never had the pleasure in hearing Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat speak I suggest you attend our State of the City luncheon at Arizona Broadway Theatre on March 28th  at 11:30am.  Mayor Carlat is a very dynamic speaker and she will share with you the many accomplishments made during the last year along with the big programs and goals she has set her sights on in the coming year.  Our Mayor continuously strives to improve the quality of every aspect of our city focusing on her goal of making Peoria the best place to live, work and play.  Tickets are only $35 with sponsorships as low as $200 which includes 4 tickets and your company name listed in the program and on the Chamber website for the next 6 months.

The Millennials Corner:

Mark your calendar: How to Meet a Deadline
By Emma Wolff 

We’ve all used the common phrase, “I’ll do it tomorrow.” Procrastination is an employee’s best friend – especially one who would rather binge-watch The Walking Dead. But, for a boss who needs an assignment completed, procrastination is their worst enemy. A two a.m., caffeine-rushed, half-asleep essay could still get you an “A” in high school or college, but that tactic will not help secure your job in the workforce. Don’t risk it. Here are a few easy tips to help you meet deadlines.
