Chamber Notes


The Chamber’s first “Lunch n Learn” event on May 14 was held in the City Council Chamber/Multi-purpose Room, with snacks provided by the City of Canyon Lake. The partnership with the City continued, with Council Members Nancy Horton and Jordan Ehrenkranz in attendance. 

Chamber members, including President Dolores Badillo, Vice-President Jim Randle, Past President Mike Irvine and board member Amber Nishida, heard presentations from Jim McLaughlin and Jackie Steed, who provided tips on how to increase business success through networking. 

"We got very positive feedback from members about this new Program of Work!" says Janet Cook, the Chamber's executive director.
