February Lunch & Learn

Our February Lunch & Learn will feature Jacquel Haider regarding Economic Development & what's happening on an Anoka County Level. 

You won't want to miss this opportunity.   

Jacquel will be serving on the Chamber Board as a non voting member, but will be our communication from the county & cities in our chamber as to what's happening. 

She will also be a resource to our Chamber & our Members in the area of Economic Development. 


Barb Rexeisen, President

There are many things happening within our Chamber right now. Our main focus is on our current members and what we can offer them and our local communities.  

We have been working diligently to improve our website, by learning the platform and getting current information out there.  

We have prepared our January Lunch & Learn to share what the new platform brings to our members & help attendees learn to navigate what is available & how utilize it.

This month's Board of Directors meeting is on
Thursday, January 17th  from 11:30 - 12:30 at the Lino Lakes City Hall.  We will be discussing the weekly updates;  who has access to which column, what training is necessary and how often it is required.   Furthermore, will discuss the billing cycle,  areas for increased revenue, late fees & set up fees.  Establishment of these parameters as a board and their use of the Chamber Nation system is pertinent to our success. All members are welcome to attend.

We are working to finalize our February Lunch & Learn. 
Bring a friend and introduce them to the network of resources and new friends they will meet through Chamber participation.
