Helping businesses to do business better. That's the goal of almost any chamber of commerce. The Parker Area Chamber of Commerce does this better than most, by scheduling great events and speakers to inspire and encourage their members. Dennis Houston, President and CEO of the Parker Area Chamber joins us to discuss their efforts to serve northern Douglas county, by monitoring and influencing relevant legislation, while also building a calendar of fun events.
One such event is slated for May 5th, as PACC invites Marketing Strategist, Kyle Sexton to speak talk about Social Media for Business. Kyle is an expert on incorporating social media with business market, and is the author of soon to be three books. The latest title will release this summer, Social Media Mullet. Kyle joins us for a preview of the event, his thoughts on strategy and a sense of humor about the whole thing.
You can still register for the event on May 5th, 8:00 to 11:00 at the PACE Center. Click here for registration details.
