Added Value<br />

Kandi Menne: President, Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce<br />

Shortly after taking over the<br />

President position with the Fairmont<br />

Area Chamber of Commerce (FACC),<br />

one of the goals I made was to bring<br />

awareness to the value of your Chamber<br />

membership.<br />

*We want you to attend events and<br />

networking meetings!<br />

*We ask that you share Chamber events and opportunities<br />

with all of your employees.<br />

*Young Professionals are the one networking group<br />

that meets year round. If you have 40 and under employees<br />

we encourage them to join our professionals<br />

group. Give us a call for the details!<br />

*Ask about the membership investment program<br />

*We receive hundreds of call and visits to our office<br />

each month looking for business referrals - we refer<br />

our members first!<br />

*We believe in community engagement and support.<br />

Coming soon we will bring a speaker to<br />

Fairmont through a partnership with Sweet Financial<br />

Partners! There will be 2 speaking engagements one<br />

at the high school and then in the evening for adults.<br />

Details will be announced soon! We are excited!<br />

Another <strong>Community</strong> Engagement piece is<br />

The Martin County Leadership Program<br />

What it is: A leadership program designed to enable<br />

participants to learn about Martin County resources,<br />

values, strengths, weaknesses, and challenges. A<br />

learning experience geared toward providing an indepth<br />

look at eight key elements of our community:<br />

education, economic development, government,<br />

healthcare, public safety, quality of life, agriculture,<br />

and culture & diversity.<br />

This program provides opportunities for<br />

candidates to exchange ideas, build networks<br />

and begin the process of identifying and solving<br />

important community issues.<br />

Who: Candidates are drawn from business, industry,<br />

education, public and private agencies, civic groups,<br />

non-profit and all other facet of the professional<br />

community. Class size is limited.<br />

Program Development: Riverland <strong>Community</strong><br />

College, the Chamber and individual day-leaders<br />

develope seminar curriculum.<br />

Where: Sessions are held locally and focus on topics<br />

directly affecting our community. They are held at a<br />

different location each session.<br />

Why: To develop candidate knowledge and<br />

understanding of our community, its assets,<br />

complexities and potential. To provide an<br />

opportunity for participants to meet and exchange<br />

ideas with each other and current community<br />

leaders. To develop leadership skills through<br />

classroom instruction, interactive exercises and small<br />

group discussion.<br />

How: A series of topical seminars held over a nine<br />

month period and conducted by local and regional<br />

professionals. Area leaders volunteer their time to<br />

raise awareness to the assets and opportunities of our<br />

community by providing an in-depth, behind-thescenes<br />

look at eight key elements of our community.<br />

Peggy Young, Business Consultant with Riverland<br />

<strong>Community</strong> College’s Training and Development<br />

Department nurtures leadership development<br />

by leading discussions that integrate community<br />

information through dialogue, interactive exercise<br />

and small group discussion.<br />

Cost: Tuition is payable at the time a participant is<br />

accepted to candidacy. Scholarship opportunities are<br />

available.<br />

When: Sessions are one full day each month,<br />

September - <strong>May</strong>, always on the first Wednesday of<br />

each month. LEADERSHIP is a commitment of time.<br />

Attendance at the work sessions and all day program<br />

meetings is imperative, participants are expected to<br />

attend all sessions to receive the greatest experience.<br />

As your Chamber President, I am honored to work<br />

and a healthy community environment. Stop in and<br />

School's Performing Arts Center where they are welcomed and<br />

hear about career paths and words of wisdom from 10 recent area<br />

graduates who are now locally employed young professionals in<br />

their knowledge of current workforce statistics. The winning<br />

school takes home a trophy to display at their school. This years two<br />

compilation of business histories submitted for this project. The goal of<br />

this project is to provide documentation of those submitted businesses<br />

so that they won’t be lost over time. Most displays in museums are meant<br />

to be viewed but not touched. The Interactive Room will incorporate<br />

items that can be touched, manipulated, and utilized as originally intended,<br />

such as rotary phones, a 1983 computer, typewriters, and more.<br />
