We've got great new programs lined up for 2014 including our annual Business Summit & State of the City Address co-hosted with the City of Chico on January 30th from 3-5pm at the CARD Center (free - but RSVP now as seats will fill up!), and a first-time seminar from noon - 1pm on February 6th focused on hiring Chico State students for internships and part time and full time jobs.  Ken Naas with the Career Center on the CSUC campus will share tools and tips for engaging students in Chico area businesses and for retaining our talented workforce with local employment.  If you've ever thought about hiring a Chico State student or recent grad, this workshop is for you.

We're now taking RSVPs for our Lunch Hour with Council member Sean Morgan on February 20th from noon - 1pm at the Old Municipal Building and we're planning a seminar with the State Board of Equalization to provide tax help to local restaurants.  More details soon!

And, of course, what would the new year be without our Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony?  I'm positively thrilled to acknowledge the work of so many business and community advocates on January 16th from 6-9pm in the Big Room at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.  We'll induct our new Chairman (welcome, Beau!) as well as recognize our outgoing and incoming Directors.  It'll be a night to remember and I hope to see you there!
