Bellevue College president, marketing guru coming to Snoqualmie Chamber events

The Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce is planning activities to help local businesspeople make connections.

The Chamber’s next luncheon, 11:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, looks at “The Future of Economic Development and Employment in the Snoqualmie Valley.”

David Rule, the president of Bellevue College, leads a panel discussion with executives from Spacelabs and other Valley employers. They will talk about the importance of workforce development and the attraction and retention of quality jobs in order to secure a strong local economy for the entire Snoqualmie Valley and Puget Sound region.

“The topic of economic development and employment is one that impacts us all,” says Chamber Director Nate Perea. “Retailers, restaurateurs, home owners, employers, non-profits, city government and anyone else that benefits from a strong local economy will want to join us to see how the Valley fits into the competitive, global landscape for jobs and economic prosperity.”

At a Chamber breakfast, 7:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 27, at Mount Si Golf Course, marketing guru Bruce Cleland from Momentum Strategy will share a marketing and word-of-mouth system to help take businesses to the next level. Learn more at snovalley.org.
