Business of the Month
Grace Place has been a huge asset to the chamber and other organizations here in Berthoud. We don't have a lot of meeting spaces in town and Grace Place has stepped up to help us fill that void. Our Ambassadors meet there every month, we hosted our Business After Hours and Snowfest Launch Party in December there, and, we just hosted our Membership Celebration there in January.

Calendar of Upcoming Events
2018 Chamber Events
Colorado Health Symposium
Applications Open for Fellowships and Call for Proposals
Apply for a Colorado Health Symposium
Fellowship or Submit a Session Proposal by March 14

Are you working to improve the health of your community? The Colorado Health Foundation , one of our Chamber members, is offering fellowships to attend the annual Colorado Health Symposium in Keystone, CO this summer. The theme of this year’s Symposium, Aug. 1-3 is Achieving Equity in Behavioral Health. Symposium fellowships support Colorado professionals from rural-based, minority-led and/or community-based organizations and covers registration, lodging and, in some instances, travel costs to the conference. The Foundation encourages people who are bringing health in reach for Coloradans, but who may work in areas outside of traditional health care industries, to apply by the March 14 deadline

The Foundation is also soliciting proposals for the Symposium's afternoon exchange sessions, which are designed to engage and offer tangible information or resources around behavioral health that attendees can apply to their own work in creating a healthier and more equitable Colorado. The deadline for submitting exchange session proposals is also March 14. 

The Colorado Health Foundation is focused on strengthening bodies, minds and communities in the fight for health equity. Learn more about their work here.

The Best Business Advice You'll Ever Get
Being an entrepreneur doesn't mean you have to go it alone. Most successful business owners will tell you they could not have accomplished their goals without help--from a mentor, colleague, even mom and dad. For many, their ability to evaluate, internalize and act on the counsel they received was instrumental in getting their companies off the ground.

In an effort to tap some of this wisdom, we called on business gurus to tell us the very best piece of  advice  they've received. From  hiring  to  philanthropy  and more, their responses were as varied as the companies they run. Read Full Article
