Intermountain Financial Group/MassMutual donated 1,000 hours to the Olympic Winter Games. The company had 16 people trained as First Responders, which required a 53-hour training course to serve as American Red Cross First Aid Station volunteers in Salt Lake and Park City.

March 8th marked the 106th anniversary of Volunteers of America. The Chamber celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and salutes all organizations and businesses 100 years old or older.

Salt Lake Community College is hosting the American Society for Quality Symposium on April 3rd. The symposium covers such topics as work demand, conflict resolution, customer satisfaction, ISO 9001 changes, and quality standards.

Here’s an Olympic business fact: According to recent reports given to Congress by Utah and national officials, the Games demonstrated that mass transit, not just highways, can be a key to solving huge transportation challenges
