Chamber Interim President Dawn Sperr

As a long-time resident of the Rogers area, it has been a pleasure serving on multiple committees within the chamber, outside the chamber, and more recently, on the chamber board of directors. This diverse group of individuals and businesses partner with the chamber to create growth and prosperity for its communities. They are committed to ensuring we are moving the chamber forward while keeping the best interests of our membership in mind. Also, we all understand that leaders, business owners, educators, and citizens all share in the responsibility of creating economic success and happiness within our community.

As a business owner, your #1 priority is your business. It should be no surprise that it is our top priority, too. The I-94 West Chamber of Commerce continues to be committed to teaming with business owners (large or small) to ensure our communities continue to flourish. Your membership can provide you access to elected officials, business referrals, education and networking opportunities.

Being a member of the I-94 West Chamber of Commerce isn’t enough. You get value from your membership by what you put into it (if you haven’t heard me say that, we should talk!). Get involved with the things that you can and that you find beneficial to your business. We continue to try and provide networking opportunities in the mornings such as Breakfast Club or Medina Club, and for those who find lunch time to work better, meet up with the Lunch Bunch. Want to get in front of members right away to make new connections? Then the ambassador committee is really for you!

As a resident of this community, the I-94 West Chamber of Commerce is your partner. It is a fantastic place to find out information about local elected officials, find a phone number, or perhaps get a referral to a member business about a service or product. We do our very best to use our strengths to see that the communities of Albertville, Corcoran, Dayton, Hamel, Hanover, Loretto, Medina, Otsego, Rogers, and Saint Michael continue to make up a vital corridor for business.

I am honored to work alongside our dedicated board who all share the same vision for business growth and a healthy community environment. On behalf of the board of directors, we thank you for your continued support in 2018. We are grateful for all our members and the desire to prosper and grow in the years ahead.

If you are not a member of the I-94 West Chamber of Commerce, please join us today. I look forward to working with everyone during my time as Interim President and invite you to check out our website for events and opportunities to connect at www.i94westchamber.org.

Thank You,
Dawn Sperr – Interim President, I-94 West Chamber
