June 3rd, Chamber meeting location changed!!
Hope you can join us! We haven't had an official general membership meeting since March. At our scheduled April meeting, we did not have enough of the general membership in attendance to have a quorum, and an official meeting could not be conducted. To allow for additional attendance, we've changed our June meeting location to the Hospital Conference Center. Meeting is on Tuesday, June 3rd at 6:30 pm. This will not be a dinner meeting. We will, however, be having ice cream sundaes following the meeting. Ice cream will be from Anchorage compliments of the Chamber!! So be sure to join us Tuesday, June 3rd at 6:30 pm to find out what's new!
