Have you been to the Wednesday Business Connection (WBC) lately? Well, chances are some of your friends have, since over 180 of you have participated in our four sessions this month. October has seen a good mix of variety at WBC, with a focus on education, county government and the Oregon Legislature. We opened the month with Senator Jeff Kruse from Roseburg. The following week belonged to Coos County Sheriff Craig Zanni. Then we had a great project update on the proposed new health and science building at the college. The last Wednesday, all three Coos County Commissioners shared their insights on current and future county operations and opportunities.
WBC offers you the chance (September through May) to network with others, promote your business or event with the weekly open mic, while keeping current on issues that impact your operations and Oregon’s Bay Area through our main presentation.
November has a wonderful lineup to enjoy at WBC. Wednesday, Nov, 1, Annette Shelton-Tiderman, of the Oregon Employment Department will discuss “The Employment Landscape in Rural Oregon”. She is followed on successive Wednesdays by the OSHU Campus on Rural Health, the new Oregon Saves program which gives Oregonians an easier way to save for retirement, and the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce Governmental Affairs manager with a look at upcoming elections and the 2018 short session.
What a great informational and networking resource for you. That’s the Wednesday Business Connection (WBC), every Wednesday from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Salmon Room at the Mill Casino-Hotel. If you have people, issues or services you would like to see as the focus of a WBC luncheon, give us a call at the Chamber.
Remember, our business is helping your business. And like us on Facebook.
