DIVERSITY SUMMIT 2015

Joe Gerstandt, co-author of Social Gravity: Harnessing the Natural Laws of Relationships, will be a speaker at the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce eighth annual Diversity Summit.

The Diversity Summit is scheduled for Sept. 29 at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center.

More than 700 attended last year’s event.

WOMEN AND INVESTING IN THE FUTURE

Conversations: Roundtables for Professional Women introduced a new format at a recent gathering, with a brief talk about finances and investing for people in their 20s to their 70s. Casey Donovan, regional representative for John Hancock Investments, spoke to the group.

The more structured program, as opposed to ice breakers, at the networking event could lead to similar discussions in future gatherings, according to Sheron Rose, Vice President, Community Strategies for the Montgomery Chamber.

ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY

A group of ministers representing each of the Montgomery City Council districts recently met to hear about workforce development and the latest information about the Montgomery Preparatory Academy for Career Technologies (MPACT).

The ministers, meeting at the Chamber Business Resource Center on South Court Street, learned about how workforce development and the school district’s MPACT affect economic development and the community.

SHOWING APPRECIATION

It’s one thing to tell people how much you appreciate them, but hand-delivering plaques to 1,700-plus businesses takes it to the next level. That’s what the Montgomery Chamber did to show its appreciation to its membership. Staff and Chamber Ambassadors delivered the plaques.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

The Chamber celebrated Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama’s 10th year of production at its Montgomery facility with a dinner at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center.

The dinner was put on by The Committee of 100, an economic development advocacy group of the Chamber.
