I have great news for you! The Conifer Chamber is excited to announce that Elevation Celebration is coming BACK! The event will be held the last full weekend in July (July 24 & 25), so mark your calendars NOW and make sure you are at THE best community event for the summer! A HUGE shout out to our presenting sponsors, American Restoration for the WEST Stage, and SANO Hospital for Animals on the EAST Stage. Of course we have an AMAZING lineup for you! New to the Elevation Celebration stage is nationally known James Carothers, coming in from Nashville and sponsored by Spectrum Electric. Also, a fan favorite and superstar, The Austin Young Band, sponsored by Team Cabalka at RE/MAX Professionals, will be there. And returning for the second year is HomeSlice, sponsored by June McKenzie with RE/MAX Alliance. Stay tuned for more bands and be sure to log on to GoConifer.com and follow the Elevation Celebration Facebook page for further announcements.

Over the past few months, I have been recognizing volunteers and leaders in our community. I have one more amazing group to highlight and that is the Ambassador Team with the Conifer Chamber. The Ambassador team includes June McKenzie with RE/MAX Alliance; Julie Dikken with Macaroni Kid: Evergreen, Conifer, Bailey; Jessica Gentry with Keller Williams Foothills Realty; Bill Aubin with Optive Commercial Capital; Katie Burgoyne with Denver AmRamp; Rachel Mulvihill with Your Mountain Realtors; Mark Spiroff with Conifer Radio; and Angela Bassano representing Rotary Club of Conifer. This group of individuals is the heart and soul of the Chamber. They are both dedicated to connecting with other Chamber members and helping those businesses to connect to other members and to our community. If you want to learn how to grow your business, get in touch with one of these rock stars. They are FANTASTIC!

I have been the executive director at the Conifer Chamber for the past six years and it has been an incredible experience. As I close out this chapter, I am so thankful for the countless people I have gotten to know over the years, friendships I have made, experiences that have challenged me, and things I have learned. It has been a great run! I’m moving over to work with Michele Robbins at RPM Agency Insurance Brokerage and am so excited that this next chapter allows me to stay connected to this amazing community!

The search is on for a new executive director, and during this time, the Conifer Chamber is still as vibrant as ever. The current staff and board of directors are working diligently as the Chamber continues to move forward. Now is the time to plug into the Conifer Chamber and take advantage of the resources that are available to help grow your business. Our members recognize the value of being a part of something bigger, an organization to help them connect with the community, to increase their visibility, to advocate for their business and to provide educational skill building opportunities. Becoming a Conifer Chamber member is a great opportunity to increase the reputation and reach of your business.
