Passing of the Gavel
Outgoing Chamber Chair Ned Curran officially handed over leadership duties to 2017 Chair Andrea Smith. Smith and Chamber CEO Bob Morgan outlined the organization’s top priorities for the coming year – much of it derived from frank conversations at the Fall Planning Retreat centered around equality and inclusion.
