We all know the temptation to hit the winning home run or finish first in a given series of races. It feels great, the camera’s flash and the crowd cheers. And while life occasionally provides those satisfying moments of personal victory, most wins are built by hitting lots of singles and doubles each and every day.

Your Chamber is in the success business, for our members and for ourselves. We need to be successful to deliver the events, the opportunities and the public advocacy that our members demand. So that means that while we swing for the fences each and every time, we are also very satisfied when we win the game by delivering lots of base hits.

Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce

In 2011 your Chamber is going to deliver over 80 separate events for our members. Ranging SPACC from FONTS our annual meeting with over 600 attendees, to our PRIMARY Chamber University series that sometimes educates HUMANIST 521 BT just six members, our events are designed to give you lots of different ways to interact with fellowSECONDARY members ITC Caslon 224 Book/Ita and business professionals. The key is that we give you FONTS choices (lots of singles and doubles!) for youPC/WEB to decide Helvetica Neue Thin which events best meet your needs. Helvetica Light The same is true in our networking. We hold breakfast events, lunch events, and after-hours socials. We know that one size doesn’t fit all and that it is important to give our members opportunities that meet your schedule, not ours.

Finally on advocacy we take on some “home run” type projects each year, but we also are available, any day of the week, to work with a member on a local issue you may have with the city in which you are located or even an issue at the county or state level. When you need help, we hope you call us first. Oftentimes our contacts can be leveraged to accelerate your question or issue, getting results when you need them, not at some unknown point in the future.

FEATURE STORY

Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce

Young Professionals

What: Peer networking over appetizers and cocktails with a main course of education and fun. Who: A diverse cast of professionals —from fresh-out-of-college to a handful of Forty Under 40 honorees. We use “young” relatively, though most participants are 21-39. Our focus is east metro, but we attract from throughout the Twin Cities. Why: “I believe that the future of our city and the east metro is within the people involved in the Chamber’s YPro. We truly have a passion for the city, our work, and the legacy we leave in our community. YPro provides us with the education and connections we need to achieve our personal and professional goals.” - Elizabeth Sorensen, YPro co-chair Next: On Thursday, June 23, the Progressive Dinner, which sells out each year, tours Mears Park for appetizers at Barrio, dinner at Faces and dessert at Señor Wong’s. On Thursday, July 21, we’ll cast our network across the river for the annual joint Chamber Young Professionals event in Minneapolis. On Thursday, September 15, we’ll network as we cook with the pros at Prom Catering.

his business. “Talking to Chamber participants about the Swarm is like advertising in the newspaper, but at no cost,” Arlotta said. Certainly many gain direct business from having an employee involved with YPro, but that’s not the sole benefit. Adam Johnson, vice president of marketing for Visit Saint Paul and member of YPro, attests to the ability of the program to not only develop young people professionally, but personally as well. In the process of broadening his business contacts, Johnson said, “YPro produced long-standing great friends.”

What does that have to do with business? Johnson argues that young professionals who are socially active and more connected to their communities make for better employees.

Do you feel like your head is in the clouds when it comes to cloud computing? We agree that it sounds nebulous but it’s essential for every business to be aware of its value proposition. Come join us on Wednesday, June 8 for a presentation by Jason Baker, VISI, where we will get down to the basics of cloud computing. The cloud computing phenomenon is gaining supporters, and for good reason. For many organizations, the complexities of providing adequate server resources, coupled with internal server costs, cripple a business’s ability to expand its services. Jason Baker will review why the Cloud makes infrastructure easy— allowing business executives to focus on their organization’s core competencies. The presentation will cover topics including:

About Almanac: Twin Cities Public Television’s “Almanac” program is a Minnesota institution. It has confidently occupied the 7 o’clock timeslot on Friday nights for more than a quarter of a century. It is the longest-running primetime TV program ever in the region. “Almanac” is a time capsule, a program of record that details our region’s history and culture during the past twenty-five years. The hour-long mix of news, politics and culture is seen live statewide on the six stations of the Minnesota Public Television Association. Almanac was the first Minnesota TV show that virtually everyone in the state could watch together. The program’s unusual format has been copied by numerous PBS stations around the country and it has led to Almanac being honored with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s award for Best Public Affairs Program. Almanac has also earned six regional Emmys awards.
