From the New Member Coffee with the Chamber to the annual Business EXPO, Chamber members have opportunities to interact in many different ways. If you’re a ‘strictly business’ person, you’ll find forums and seminars to guide you in compliance and ways to advocate for your interests. The Chamber also has many social activities where you can meet customers or prospects in a casual setting. The Government Review Council identifies, analyzes and monitors legislation that could impact the way you do business, and recommends policy positions to the Chamber board of directors.
To be good stewards in running our social enterprise, I appreciate that the Chamber has provided me a way to increase my knowledge and understanding of the issues facing our community and the opportunities they may present in the growth of Goodwill. The Good Morning Bakersfield program is an excellent new service to the business community. I look forward to future in-depth discussions on topics important to our future and I encourage all of you to put these events on your calendar and attend as well.
