Participation came from civic groups, health and wellness, financial/insurance, retail, restaurants, lodging, housing, education, recreation, industry and trades, the environment, the arts, faith-based community, public safety and county and federal agencies.

The Almanor Basin Community Consortium (ABCC), sponsored by the Chamber and the Lake Almanor Community Foundation, took place at Cliffords Restaurant where the group was greeted with appetizers and beverages before they were asked to participate in a series of discussions.
