Carbondale Chamber Business Conference set for Tuesday

CARBONDALE, Colorado – The Carbondale Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual Business Conference and Expo, “The A, B, C’s of Business,” from 1-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Carbondale Fire Department Training Center, 301 Meadowood Drive.

“In the current economic climate we have heard from our business members, ‘It’s time to get back to basics,'” Carbondale Chamber Executive Director Sherri Harrison said.

“The chamber has responded with a conference to aid businesses in doing just that,” she said. “The backbone of this event is locals supporting locals, sharing best practices and discovering that all the resources for business success are available right here in this valley.”

The conference will include a panel of local experts discussing marketing, technology, and financial planning and business strategies.

Technology panelists will include Kelley Mitchell of Mitchell and Company, Tom Kenyon of Kenyon Design Works, and Farr Shepard of Decypher Technology.

Discussing marketing will be Pat Curry of Blue Tent Marketing, Gunilla Asher of Colorado Mountain News Media, and Jeanette Darnauer of the Darnauer Group.

And addressing financial planning and business strategies will be Steve Martin of New York Life, Dave Weimer of Edward Jones Investments, and Debbie Berg of U.S. Bank.

A business expo including more than 20 local businesses will run concurrently with the presentations and continue until 6 p.m.

“The expo will offer business the opportunity to share with other businesses,” Harrison said. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to meet the panelists.

The expo will conclude with a networking social, including appetizers from Bravo Fine Catering and beer and wine.

Tickets are $40 for Carbondale chamber members, and $50 for nonmembers. The ticket price includes the conference, expo, appetizers and one drink. Tickets are still on sale now at the Carbondale Chamber, located in the Cowen Center, or call 963-1890 to charge by phone.
