Here’s a Chamber History Fact: In 1999 the Salt Lake Chamber hired me, Larry Mankin, as the new president of the Salt Lake Chamber. I had been the Kalamazoo, Michigan Chamber President, but fell in love with Salt Lake when I came for a visit. Working with the Salt Lake Chamber, especially the hundreds of volunteers, is the best job in the world.

How do you celebrate 100 years of building business in Salt Lake? You throw a party! On September 14th is the Chamber’s Century Celebration Gala. This will be an evening to remember for the next 100 years. Call the Chamber now to reserve your space at 328-5050 or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
