On March 28, the Greater Chamber Connection Board members held their annual board retreat. This meeting focused on the 2017 goals that the Story City GCC wants to work toward achieving.

One of those important goals for both the GCC office and the Board of Directors are making 1-on-1 contacts with our business partners. One of the things we at the GCC love is communication with our amazing businesses in town. We are here for and because of these partners and we all need to work on those personal touches and interactions that we can sometimes bypass in our busy lives.

Another goal we have is to support each other. It could be helping with each committee’s events or volunteering to host an afterhours event or taking some time to chat with neighboring businesses in the community. We want to make sure that everything we do through the GCC is in benefit and in appreciation of this amazing community that we have here.

So, if you see one of the following board members or myself feel free to talk with us, we would love to chat with you. The 2017 GCC Board Members: Roy Watson, Caleb Knutson, Connie Phillips, Chad Gray, Jocee Lowe, Paula Brown, Marian Olive, Rick Schreier, Al Holm, Karl Ostrem and Karen Hermanson.
