The new year always brings new ideas, new resolutions and new goals as we strive personally and professionally. I love a fresh start to the year, creating goals and lists of what I would like to accomplish and strive for. This year I will do my best to learn, grow and explore; sounds like everyone, right, and easy to say but not always as easy to do.
As a chamber we want you to use us as a resource to engage with the community, enhance skills and knowledge, increase brand exposure and to build relationships. Here is a preview of our great opportunities coming up this year; you can start planning out how you would like to get involved with the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce.
One of our largest and most celebrated events, the Charlemagne Award Dinner, will be Feb. 2 at the Q Center in St. Charles. At this event, we honor several community businesses and major business anniversaries, and in addition to that, we are celebrating the Charlemagne Award, which is given to a community member for a lifetime of achievement. This is a wonderful event for our members and the community.
February will kick off with a few seminars that are related to today’s events. First we will have a Facility Safety and Active Shooter seminar at City Hall from 8 to 10 a.m. Feb. 13. Then there is a hot topic that we are all very familiar with in the St. Charles area, tax reform. The legislative committee will be hosting its Legislative Update Luncheon on Feb. 23. Stay tuned for more information!
Feel free to contact us here at the chamber with any questions and find out how to get involved!
