Our 29th Annual Chamber Golf Outing is one of our largest fundraisers of the year and it’s coming up on Friday, May 19th. A tried and true, signature event for our Chamber, it is always a great, fun, exciting day for all involved. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for that perfect spring day! And to our golfers, May the Course be with you.

In mid-April, we hosted our first Coffee and Conversations event. Attendees made great connections as we all learned and discussed creating and sustaining a healthy workforce (read the recap here!). If you haven’t made it to one of our new member networking events, please consider this a personal invitation. Come see how our Chamber is changing and adapting to better serve our members. And we’re having an outstanding time doing it! Read more about our May Connecting Athens Professionals (CAP) Happy Hour here, and look for details about our June After-Hours event soon. And looking to the end of the year, we have something very exciting in the works for our October Business After Hours event… stay tuned!

It has been an exciting time at the Chamber. One of my primary goals, when I became Chamber President, was to help members engage in a more meaningful way. With feedback from members, and creative, out-of-the-box thinking from our staff and board, we are doing just that. Please reach out with your ideas, feedback, suggestions, or concerns. My door is always open.

In gratitude,

Kristin Miller, President
