GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association is hosting a speaker tomorrow on how to weather the economic downturn.

The international speaker and business consultant Patrick McGaughey has a 30-year background in business, according to the chamber. His career began in broadcasting, and he’s worked in radio and sales management as well as running nonprofit organizations and operating a retail business.

“We had planned this seminar months ago but with the changes in the economy, it seems like a very timely topic and we think it will be of great interest,” said the chamber’s president and CEO, Marianne Virgili. “Every challenge presents new opportunities, and that’s what the speaker will address.”

Tickets for the event tomorrow, from 9 a.m. to noon, are still available for $35 for chamber members and $45 for nonmembers. They cost $5 extra at the door.

The chamber will also hold its “Biz-Opoly” annual business trade fair on Oct. 17 from 4-8 p.m. at the Community Center. Admission is free.

Virgili said the trade fair has more than 40 booths. Besides networking and getting a chance to see what other businesses and services are available in the area, the trade fair has door prizes and drawings including a $500 voucher toward a chamber trip to China. There’s also a Sunlight ski pass and a golf package including a backcountry tour and a dinner, among other prizes.

Call 945-6589 for more information.
