    Our Membership
    October 23, 2017 
    I would like to introduce two new members of our Chamber team. Haven Blair and Corey Koif join us as the newest Chamber interns on our team and we could not be more excited to have their talent and creativity to help fuel our Chamber to new exciting heights! I hope you have the opportunity to meet these individuals at one of our upcoming events. 
    Providing internship opportunities are a great way to bring fresh perspectives into your business. Internships are also a way we develop and mentor the incoming workforce, giving them real world experience to put them on a path towards success. You may likely find you want to offer one of them a full-time position at your company. Consider offering an internship opportunity at your business. You can post the position free on the Chamber website.

    The Ladders 
    Study: The average worker's inbox contains 199 unread emails
    Emails fly into your inbox at all hours of the day and night, making the elusive "inbox zero" feel
    even more out of reach. Just how bad is it?
    new report by cloud-based Enterprise Work Management provider  Workfront found that US employees average 199 unread or unopened emails taking up space in their inboxes at any given time.
    Sixty percent of respondents were on board with the idea that "the time I have to spend dealing with email is time I could be more productive."

    How Great Leaders Inspire Action
    Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership -- starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King Jr, and the Wright Brothers.
