Did you know that during the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament, productivity at work takes a nosedive? This year, the second full day of March Madness is on St. Patrick’s Day. Two reasons why productivity takes a hit! Your Evergreen Chamber has figured out how to enjoy basketball, enjoy socializing, but still grow your business that day: Join us from 1-5 pm on Friday, March 17 at The Wild Game for basketball, food, cocktails, fun games, some side betting, and LOTS of networking. This will be a great opportunity to make connections with other potential partners in our community and to understand what the Chamber can do for your business and our community. This event is open to EVERYONE! The cost per person will cover food, games, a few drinks and prizes for different contests. Register in advance at evergreenchamber.org and then come join us for some afternoon fun.

The Chamber is gearing up to honor women in our community at our annual Women in Business Luncheon on Thursday, May 4 at Mount Vernon Canyon Club. Nominations are now open for the Mountain Area Women’s Hall of Fame and for Women on the Rise. You can nominate someone for either category and the selection committee will ensure they are in the correct category.

The Hall of Fame inductees award will CONTINUE to recognize the strong, influential women who have had a powerful, positive impact on the mountain area as a result of spending years dedicating their time and efforts toward the betterment of our community. The nominations are open to women from the business and nonprofit community (both past and present) on whose shoulders we all stand, and who exemplify a lifetime commitment to their neighbors.

Because we recognize that a “Hall of Fame” implies many years of service to our community, the selection committee felt compelled to also recognize Women on the Rise. Our future Hall of Fame nominees are our current Women on the Rise who are elevating others and our community through their business and philanthropic endeavors. We are thrilled to add this additional award category to our Women in Business Luncheon and invite you to start thinking about nominating impactful women in our mountain community.

Nominations are open until March 24 and we look forward to seeing you on May 4.
