Each month, I attend a networking lunch with other Chamber Executives as part of the Metropolitan Council of Chambers of Commerce (MCCC) which is a united coalition of over 30 Chambers of Commerce in the Twin Cities region. The group has met monthly for over 25 years, to network and discuss developing metro business issues, trends and professional development. It is the one place where every month, both large and small Chamber Executives meet with each other and top industry, state & local political officials seeking business perspectives and solutions concerning jobs and metro-centric economic development issues. In addition to metro Chambers, the US and the Minnesota Chambers are also active partners.
This month was hosted by the Burnsville Chamber of Commerce at the Better Business Bureau. We learned about their organization and resources available to businesses, many of which are free! We followed the presentation with a roundtable discussion that, as always, was very beneficial to me and the Richfield Chamber!
