Changing Priorities: Quality of Place in Crisis and Reality
Presented by: John Seymour, President & CEO, Decatur-Morgan Chamber of Commerce; Michael Huber, President & CEO, Indy Chamber; and J. Mac Holloday, Founder & CEO, Market Street Services
The lines between community, economic, and workforce development are increasingly blurred. With talent and workforce emerging as the most important location drivers for companies, chambers are increasingly focused on building an environment that can attract and retain workers. Panelists will share how they are integrating efforts around a comprehensive quality of place strategy.
Politics & Social Dysfunction: Good for Chambers?
Presented by: Dave Adkisson, President & CEO, Kentucky Chamber of Commerce
When civil discourse disintegrates and leads to social and political fragmentation, an opportunity may arise for your chamber. Capitalize on your chamber’s natural role as the voice of reason by leveraging dysfunction to build credibility, influence, and a return to community advancement.
Strength in Public Policy Coalitions
Presented by: David May, President & CEO, Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce
Coalitions can be one of the most effective instruments in your advocacy toolbox. Examine successful case studies to learn how to build, sustain, and mobilize coalitions with traditional and new partners.
Inclusion Beyond Race
Presented by: Sonja Hughes, Vice President of Inclusion, Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce; Katie Taylor, Director of Workforce Development and Entrepreneurship, Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce; and Kim Dahlsten, Vice President & Membership Director, Manhattan Area (KS) Chamber of Commerce
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives have grown well beyond addressing only racial matters. Learn about chamber programs that encompass gender, physical ability, and sexual orientation.
