The Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce’s Healthcare Committee is hosting a forum entitled, Keeping Your Business Healthy in Today’s Healthcare Environment on Friday, March 21, 2014 from 8–10 a.m. at the UCM Summit Center. The primary focus of the forum is to provide relevant and useful information to business owners as they address issues and make decisions about today’s healthcare environment for themselves and their employees. The Healthcare Committee has assembled a robust line-up including healthcare providers, a healthcare industry expert, an insurance provider and a patient advocate. Each will address their respective area of expertise and answer questions from the attendees. “With the many issues still facing employers and their employees as a result of the Affordable Care Act rollout, the Healthcare Committee was eager to assemble industry experts to help guide businesses in their decision process,” said Healthcare Committee Chair Jeffrey Williams. “We are excited and pleased to have such a knowledgeable panel who will share their industries’ experiences and provide solid guidance. All Chamber members should consider attending.”

There is no cost to attend this event; reservations are required. Reservations should be made online at LSchamber.com. The deadline to register is March 19, 2014. Breakfast will be provided. Thanks to the forum sponsors:

Get Ready for the First “Nancy Do MY Job!” The Chamber is excited to roll out a new program in 2014 where Chamber President Nancy Bruns will get out there, roll up her sleeves and work with some of our members. “Nancy Do MY Job” will provide the Chamber President the opportunity to experience the day-to-day to work within all different types of organizations. The idea is not to make

this a walk in the park for Nancy, but rather give her a realistic snapshot of what it’s like to be a part of your business... the good, the bad, the ugly. This program also allows business owners to interact with Nancy on their turf. Mark your calendars for March 19 from 9:30-11 a.m. as Nancy works at the Whistle Stop Coffee & Mercantile, 227 SE Main Street, alongside owner Candace Jennings.
