“We’re very grateful that Sherri is making the time to speak to us about what her organization has accomplished – and plans to accomplish,” says Heather Ennis, the Chamber’s Executive Director. “As a Chamber, it’s critical to provide these learning opportunities to both Chamber and community members. And as engaged citizens, it’s important that we all take advantage of occasions to look at issues from a regional perspective. Sherri will help us with that process during the June 26 luncheon.”
