Please note: We pay for all meals ordered. Once you have made your reservation, you will be charged for your dinner even if you do not attend.
Our short term goal is get everyone to attend our general meetings. You joined an organization to help bolster your business, you paid your dues. Why not attend the once a month meetings? This is where your questions can be answered. It’s where information is shared. We try to get guest speakers that have construction based information so you can stay on top of the game. Larry Adams works hard on getting informative speakers. If there is someone you think would be interesting to have, construction related or not, let him know. I think a magician would be great to have for a night.
Let us know what topics you would like covered or your suggestions for a speaker. Remember, this is YOUR association and your only going to get out of it what you put into it. So get involved.
Oh look!! It’s time to meet a short term goal. Let’s all mark August 12th 6pm on our calendars. That is our next general dinner meeting. At $15 per plate, it’s hard to get a great meal like this. Salad, main course and desert, now that’s a deal. RSVP online to have a chance of winning next months dinner for free.
This month’s guest speaker will be Ms. Chris Barton from the Bullhead area Chamber of Commerce. Chris will be talking about various Chamber programs as well as talking about positive results from adverting in California and the Mid-West. See You there!!!
So there you have it. And while you’rer marking down this meeting go ahead and mark the second Wednesday of every month so you won’t miss a meeting. I look forward to seeing all of you.
President Rick Bastyr

They are also going to have a 1/6 ad in the Where to Retire magazine with a free ad in back of this magazine. Director Camacho checked her phone and said that we are not listed on the Chamber of Commerce’s website.

Vice President Adams said he will have that fixed.
