This Monday, the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce’s Quarterly Membership Luncheon featured an open forum for resource gathering, experience sharing and collaborative problem-solving, convening area business and workforce development providers and diverse voices from Mesa County’s business community. The luncheon featured a unique, resource-packed program for business owners and professionals in attendance. The program included conversations with area partners, audience polling, guided group discussions and report outs facilitated by Grand Junction Chamber CEO Candace Carnahan.

Acknowledging that access to capital and talent are top of mind issues for businesses today, conversations included resource exploration with the Business Incubator Center and the Mesa County Workforce Center, covering a range of relevant services and opportunities available to local businesses. Open group discussions encouraged attendees to share their own experiences utilizing some of these local resources, in turn, sharing real outcomes, successes and ideas with fellow businesses.

With interactive elements intentionally weaved throughout the program, the luncheon was designed to support the Grand Junction Chamber’s ongoing efforts to support impactful dialogue with our business community and members, across industries, business sizes and professions. By bringing ample and diverse engagement opportunities to our community, the Grand Junction Chamber actively seeks to connect with and address the evolving challenges and needs across the business community. Convening area partners and service providers in events like the June Membership Luncheon, we at the Grand Junction Chamber also aim to encourage access to, awareness, and utilization of the incredible network of local resources and services that are available for business support and success.
