The Chamber will be co-sponsoring a Holiday Open House with the Pottawatomie County Economic Development Corporation to welcome their new team to Wamego on Tuesday, December 9 from 4:30-7:00 p.m. at the Chamber office, 529 Lincoln. We will also be finishing office renovations mid-November and we’d like to welcome our members to check out the updated space while we celebrate the business and community accomplishments of 2014! This Open House will serve as the Chamber After Hours event for December, so we look forward to refreshments and conversation with our members before year-end!
The Annual Leaders’ Retreat consisting of members from the Wamego Area Chamber of Commerce, Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Junction City Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Pottawatomie County Economic Development Corporation and Flint Hills Regional Council, welcome new and returning participants to engage in collaborative discussion regarding regional economic development topics. Once again, Courtney Dunbar with Olssen Associates will facilitate this 1.5 day retreat at the Overland Park Convention Center. Registration information coming soon!
The Chamber officially kicked-off it’s first Total Resource Campaign on November 1, 2014. This campaign includes the membership drive for 2015 investments and gives the members an opportunity to pledge their resources for sponsorship of annual 2015 events. Through one-on-one meetings with every Chamber member this November and December, our Executive Director, Megan Umscheid, will bring the Total Resource Campaign to you personally as we gear up for another fantastic year! Meeting with members one-on-one will enable the Chamber to communicate new benefits and additions to the Membership Investment levels and will allow businesses to share their own 2015 goals and needs from the Chamber. We look forward to conversations with the members and appreciate your partnership!
