Sometimes it’s good to step back and take a broader view of what is going well, especially when we are participating in impressive progress. This article brings you up to speed on a few successes that the Chamber has recently enjoyed.
First, we have a dynamic group of young professionals called WHYPRO (Windsor Heights Young Professionals) that has taken off and is poised to do exciting things in the community. Launched by our newest board member, Leng Vong Reiff of Akili Design, this group met and celebrated its launch in June at the 515 Brewing Co. Bringing together about 40 area people eager to learn more and participate, WHYPRO’s agenda includes helping members refine their leadership abilities and enhance their personal skills. If you’d like to learn more, contact Leng@akilidesign.com.
Another business meet-up, Do Business Windsor Heights, is a brainstorming group has met with success for several months. This group of area professionals and business owners gathers to discuss building their business by learning and sharing ideas with each other. They met in June with stellar attendance that included State Representative Chris Hagenow and City of Windsor Heights Mayor Jerry Sullivan as well as other city representatives. Do Business Windsor Heights considered ideas on how the city can work in tandem with businesses to help build our community, working together to highlight what is great about Windsor Heights for the rest of the metro. Do Business Windsor Heights meets the last Tuesday of each month at various locations in the area, so please check out our new and improved website for details. We hope you’ll join us.
The Chamber has enjoyed a renewed energy by working more closely with the City of Windsor Heights this year, building relationships and opportunities to help our businesses and community prosper. We hope to see you at some of these events if you are a business owner, a business professional or a person who wants to enjoy more of the best services and shopping right here in the community.
