Each year, our Annual Meeting brings together hundreds of business members to celebrate the previous year’s accomplishments, recognize outstanding individuals and businesses through our award ceremony, and a look at the year ahead.

This year will look very different.

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are reinventing the way we do our annual meeting and how we bring our business members together to connect, engage, and thrive.

Join us Tuesday, June 30th at 12 pm. This online event is being offered FREE to all members, thanks to the sustaining support from our sponsors.

We are excited to bring our community together in a whole new light to showcase where we’ve been and what we’re doing to maintain resiliency as we rebuild, reinvent and recover in the months ahead.

Join us as we reinvent together!
