South Dakota Chamber and Economic Development Council Sets Fall Meeting Date
The annual fall conference of the SDCEDC organization will be held Wednesday, November 12, 2008 at the Pierre Ramkota. Pre-conference activities will begin the evening of November 11 with an informal social (hors d'oeuvres and cash bar) running from 5:30 to 7 PM in the Courtyard area of the Ramkota. The pre-conference social is a great opportunity for new attendees to become acquainted with seasoned professionals.
The November 12 day long session will feature Bob Ash of Life Lessons from Indianapolis, IN. Bob specializes in leadership development and team building techniques. The organizational business meeting will be conducting during the lunch hour.
Registration for the conference is required and has been set at $50 for SDCEDC members and $65 for non-members. Conference meals and refreshments are included with the registration price.
Further details and a registration form will be mailed to the members of SDCEDC later this summer.
