State of the Community


The third annual event featured speakers from The Right Place, sharing regional and local economic development efforts, as well as talent and workforce development trends and best practices. 

This virtual presentation also included a panel discussion with local leaders, who represented a cross-section of the community. This moderated discussion touched on top topics affecting our business community and Mason County.


Membership and participation in the Chamber of Commerce is a vital component to fostering the healthy growth of our community. It is an active and fluid organization that is constantly evolving, and the value you receive from membership directly correlates with the energy you contribute to it. I have had the honor to serve as a member of the board of directors and president. It is another way to give back to a community that has supported me and my business throughout my career.
