New Year, New Opportunities! A Free Virtual Event

Identify success techniques using life experiences and how to use your skills to better your community in 2021.
Building confidence, keeping dialogue open and effective, and understanding the perspective of others are key points in a virtual “Lunch & Learn” event at 12 noon on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.
Sponsored by the several area chambers, other organizations and West Central Initiative’s Live Wide Open campaign, the noon-hour presentation features renown speaker Kelly Sayre.
