The Chamber’s Business Summit is taking on a new format this year. We are embarking on a multi-day virtual event with sessions strategically placed at 8:00AM, noon and 4:00PM to limit the effect on your workday. We launch with an inspirational keynote from Christin Collins, are presenting a special session on implicit bias with Tessa LeSage from FutureMakers Coalition, and conclude with a hopeful message for 2021 from Charly Caldwell.
