Join us for the Chamber’s largest event of the year, the 133rd Annual Meeting! Together, we will celebrate the resiliency of our community as we look ahead to 2021. We have learned a lot about ourselves, our teams, and our businesses over the past year. These individual stories come together to create a strong and resilient community.
We are thrilled to welcome keynote speaker Josh Linkner for this live-streamed event.

He has been the founder and CEO of five tech companies, which sold for a combined value of over $200 million. He has twice been named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and is a President Barack Obama Champion of Change award recipient.
