The Clearwater County Chamber of Commerce hosted the monthly membership meeting on Oct 4, 2023 in the Fiesta En Jalisco banquet room. 20 members and guests joined the 4pm Happy Hour to network and share information.

Director Erica Holland gave her report on financial status, new members, events, and outreach opportunities. Recent members added to the growing roster include Clearwater Pixels and Riverside Lanes. Susan Jacobson CCED Director gave an update on the Community Forums held in each of the towns in Clearwater County and projects underway and in the works. Please contact her to learn more and become involved. Kaci Ralstin, Regional Director for Senator Risch, reported via zoom on the 45 day Continuing Resolution passed to halt government shutdown. Kaci also wants constituents to know that if they are ever faced with an issue regarding a federal agency, that hasn’t been resolved, to contact the senators office to sign a Privacy Release form allowing them to contact that agency on their behalf. This is a free service Senator Risch offers.

Following the brief business meeting was a lively program of BIZZ BUZZ. This one-to-one information sharing with 2 minutes timed to give equal opportunity and rotation for everyone present to get to know each other better. After which, many reported appreciation for the new information gained and enjoyed the experience. We hope to offer this again in the spring of 2024.
