THIS IS MICHAEL DE GROOTE FROM THE SALT LAKE CHAMBER, WITH YOUR METRO BUSINESS REPORT

Several Salt Lake businesses report personnel changes. Jane Reister Conard of Intermountain Health Care was elected to the board of the American Health Lawyers Association. The Manufacturing Extension Partnership has added four new members to its board of directors. They are Mike Loveless of Love-less Ash Company, Joe Knight of Setpoint, Lorri Kociniski-Puchlik of the ST. George Chamber of Commerce, and Dr. Scott Hinton of Utah State University.

Creighton University released their October Mountain States Business Conditions index. According to the index, business conditions are relatively unchanged from September. Many respondents, however, expressed concern over the potential impact of a war with Iraq. The survey also showed that production is healthy--but that higher production was achieved with overtime and part-time workers--not by hiring new full-time workers.

According to the Volunteers of America, today is the Meier & Frank Charity Shopping Day. Volunteers of America is selling coupon books for the event that benefits over 100 non-profits in our community.
