We invite all leaders and their teams from the Mid-Willamette Valley to come learn how to implement proven methods for growing as a community of understanding. We will lean about having an outward mindset by an organization that has a proven method to change lives and transform organizations. In the afternoon session, we’ll hear from a procurement specialist who will share secrets to obtaining contracts to increase your business revenue.

This is a great opportunity for the community to come and hear discussion about issues that matter to them from candidates for Mayor, City Council, and State Representative.

Dallas Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center has announced that we will not be directing next year’s City events. While the events such as Summerfest are expect to continue we will not be the organization leading them. We have decided to hand over the events in an effort to become less of an event Chamber, and more of a service Chamber. We hope that by better focusing our efforts to better serve our community.
