May Workshop to Focus on Advocacy/Workforce Development

Advocacy and workforce development best practices will be the focus of the association’s workshop on Thursday, May 11 in Denver.

“The workshop is designed to provide chamber professionals with best practices they can utilize in their organizations in the areas of workforce development and government affairs,” said W.A.C.E. Vice Chair Mike Neal, president/CEO of the Tulsa Regional (OK) Chamber. “Today’s number one problem for businesses of all shapes and sizes is finding available, trained workers. Our workshop will equip attendees to help their members address this challenge.

“Similarly, one of the most important roles for every chamber is advocacy, and we’ll examine ways in which chambers can be more effective advocates on behalf of their members.”

It doesn’t matter if you’re just getting started or already have successful programs; this workshop is for you.

Best practices and tips for success with takeaways for chambers of ALL sizes and program levels will be presented. There also will be plenty of time allotted for interaction and Q & A.

The registration deadline is April 24 or until sold out — space is limited. Registration is $75 per person, which includes lunch.
