PINEDALE — Chick-fil-A Leadercast at Sublette County Library May 4, 2012

Community business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending Chick-fil-A Leadercast at the Sublette County Library in Pinedale on May 4, 2012.

Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day leader development event broadcast LIVE from Atlanta, Ga. to hundreds of sites throughout the nation, including Pinedale.  Speakers for this year’s event include:

Tim Tebow, NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and best-selling author; Urban Meyer, ESPN analyst and former head football coach for the University of Florida; Soledad O’Brien, Anchor and special correspondent for CNN; Patrick Lencioni, Best-selling author and president of The Table Group; John Maxwell, Leadership expert & best-selling author of “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership”; Marcus Buckingham, Strengths strategist, best-selling author and researcher; Angela Ahrendts, CEO, Burberry; Roland Fryer, Professor of economics at Harvard University and CEO of the Education Innovation Laboratory; Andy Stanley, Best-selling leadership author and communicator; Sheena Iyengar, Author of The Art of Choosing and world-renowned expert of choice.

This year’s program will focus on the power of choice. The diverse group of internationally-acclaimed authors, leadership experts and practitioners will share insights to help leaders empower and equip others at work, at home and in the community through his or her choices.

Last year, 85,000 leaders from 17 countries attended Chick-fil-A Leadercast. In its 12th year, this full day, experiential conference is predicted to reach its largest audience to date. “The Chamber focuses on a variety of business development opportunities for our membership and the community.  Leadercast is one of the best, most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of to be offered to people in Wyoming,” said Brian Gray, resident for the Sublette Chamber of Commerce. “But it goes beyond that. I think this conference, although very focused on leadership, transcends the topic and really shows you how to lead in life.”

“The Chamber is proud to host for a second year along with Gillette and Cheyenne. It’s exciting  for our organization to reach out to bring this renowned business event to leaders on the western part of the state,” said Terrie Swift, Executive Director for the Sublette Chamber of Commerce.

For local ticketing information, call 307-367-2242 or visit www.sublettechamber.com. Breakfast and lunch will be served and the event will be presented in a comfortable working environment.  $100/pp. Limited seating available.

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce has received quite a recognition! Read on for more information…

From the Jackson Hole Chamber:  The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce received notification that it has received a Four Star Accreditation by the US Chamber of Commerce.  This places the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce in the top 2% of 6,936 chambers of commerce in the United States.  The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is the only accredited chamber of commerce in Wyoming and part of an elite group of 152 chambers of commerce nationwide that have been validated by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Accreditation Program as “having solid programs, demonstrating clear organizational procedures, and as being a catalyst for positive action in the community.”

The US Chamber of Commerce states that “The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce has demonstrated a good track record of operating a successful chamber and achieving desirable results for its members.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is proud to accredit the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce with our 4-Star designation.  Congratulations on this remarkable achievement!”  The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce improved upon its Three Star Accreditation in 2006.  Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tim O’Donoghue states:  “Since 2006, we have worked at continuous improvement of our member services, organizational capabilities and performance, and effectiveness at championing the interests of local businesses, enhancing their prosperity, strengthening the economic climate of Teton County, and being an active contributor to the interests of business in the State of Wyoming.  We have received this accreditation and recognition through a rigorous process conducted by a panel of industry experts and leaders.  While we may never fully meet the accreditation criteria of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because of our non-partisan, non-endorsement of political candidates, we are pleased to have received this accreditation and high-level recognition of our work and organization.  I also believe our accreditation is a reflection of the excellence present in our business and overall community.”

For more information on the Accreditation of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, please contact Tim O’Donoghue at (307) 733-3316 or timo@jacksonholechamber.com.

It’s Still Beautiful in Wyoming

Photo from Trib.com taken from a story posted on June 9, 2010

Many of our fellow Wyoming citizens are currently facing flooding and the threats of flooding in many parts of the state. Fremont County is currently battling a disaster, and Saratoga is another area in jeopardy — just to name two locations. It’s amazing to me that we’ve gone from drought to flooding in such a short time — but this is the case with Mother Nature. My husband, who is a geologist, can explain all the science to me and why things happen — I’ll let him blog that if he’d like. 🙂 For me, I’m just simply amazed.

My oldest child summed it up well with their daily journal entry: “Today was a beautiful day. We planted my pumpkin plant outside. Today was not a beautiful day. We had a hail storm and my pumpkin plant was outside. My dad had to cover it with the laundry basket. Today is a beautiful day again.” It made me smile because that IS Wyoming in a nutshell — beautiful days turn to black skies and dynamic thunderstorms…just to be over within minutes sometimes, with blue skies returning.

This idea can cross over into the flooding and other disasters Wyoming experiences. A beautiful day can become tragic, but it will be beautiful again with time. How do I know this? Because we have wonderful PEOPLE, and PEOPLE help each other through difficult times. Losing your home, your possessions, etc., is a horrible, horrible thing — at least knowing that there are people in your community and throughout your state that care and are here to help can make a world of difference. And those people helping each other can make the day beautiful once again…

Our prayers are going out to those battling flooding — may your beautiful day return quickly to you…
