Joseph HowellDear <<First Name>>,

As we revel in our wet summer weather, I encourage you to take advantage of some of the easy ways to get involved in the community. In this newsletter, you'll find the link to the SAAF LGBT community survey--just ten minutes to complete it!--and information on how to volunteer with the Trans*Studies conference this September and how to register for AIDSWALK 2016. 

And, of course, you can always join us at breakfast or this month's Out & About to connect with the community.

If you're a member, consider adding a Hot Deal or Event to the Chamber website. Let the community know how to connect with you!

Yours in service, 
B. Joseph Howell
Board President
