JAMESTOWN,N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – All chamber volunteers, from the chamber board and all the committees, were invited to a chamber-sponsored luncheon at the University of Jamestown, Newman Arena foyer, which was held recently. The meal was provided by Sodexo Catering, and approximately 40 volunteers attended the luncheon.
“The reason for the event was to thank the volunteers for their service to the chamber, and to recognize their support and commitment to the chamber goals and objectives,” the chamber reports. “Either the chairpersons, or a member of the committee, was asked to recognize their committee or board members, and to give a brief history of the purpose of each of the committees or the board, and talk about what each group has going on.”
The volunteers recognized the value of their own groups, but also the overall value of the chamber in helping the community with education, advocacy, special events, business training, and so much more. It was noted that each of the committees has grown this past year in membership and activities and events, bringing even more value to the community. All of the committees would welcome new members.
The presenters for each of the groups included Nancy Miller, president of the chamber board; Robert Martin, co-chair for the City Beautification Committee; Jason Rohr, chamber board of directors and a member of the Ag Energy Committee; Lindsey Vogel, chairperson for the Young Professionals of Jamestown; and Monica Hieb, member of the Ambassador Committee. The Ambassadors helped organize the event and collected door prizes from several businesses which were available to those attending.
Becky Thatcher-Keller, Executive Director of the chamber, announced a new award that will be given out at the event in 2018, for the Chamber Volunteer of the Year, and nomination forms will be available early in 2018. For more information, please contact the chamber at 701-252-4830 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
