A CHRISTMAS STORY C & B - Chamberlain took home an award for their creative float in the 9th Annual Parade of Lights in Chamberlain. Service Tech Ryan Brown took on the role of Ralphy in his rabbit costume, Tech Dave Bohon was Dad in the recliner, Service Writer Erin Bohon and Admin Marcey Urban dressed as leg lamps and the Bohon kids got in to the action too, even getting their tongues stuck to the flagpole!
Chamberlain joined other area businesses creating their own light displays in a local park.
The newly named Leadership Summit was held at the end of November in Sioux Falls. This 3-day meeting brought together Parts, Service and Store Managers from every C & B store as well as Regional Managers and several teams from headquarters. Over the course of the meeting managers had general sessions to get company-wide updates on topics such as budgeting, marketing, human resources and organizational structure, and also attended breakout sessions with small groups to focus on specific sales and aftermarket topics. There was also time to meet fellow C & B employees from across the regions, and relax with some food and games in the evenings.
