Hospital CEO and chamber member Rodger McCollum is the main speaker, and will talk about the new campus in the works on Snoqualmie Ridge. The event gets started with a social session at 11:30 a.m.

Lunch and Learn

Facebook can either be a valuable marketing tool or simply a waste of time, according to workshop presenters from N J & H New Media Marketing. The workshop will teach strategies on getting better results with Facebook with just a few minutes a day.

By specializing in Internet marketing, email marketing, and social media, presenters can help members be found online, engage with potential customers and convert visitors to customers.

With limited space for the workshop, Chamber representatives suggest that potential students plan on attending and arriving early to the event. Lunch is provided; Cost is $10.
