Thank You Leaders

by | May 11, 2021 | From the CEO

As a Chamber of Commerce, we are incredibly fortunate to be led by business community volunteers. Over the course of a calendar year, we have the opportunity to interact with amazing people, sharing their time and talent with the Chamber.

We are so pleased to see BizWest celebrating some of these wonderful women through their 2021 Notable Women – Banks & Credit Unions feature.  We are so proud to see Chamber Board Chair Nicole Staudinger with FirstBank and Board Member/Moving Fort Collins Forward Campaign Co-Chair Deb Kelly with Independent Financial featured.

As well, several Chamber members and Leadership Fort Collins and Leadership Northern Colorado grads were featured.  Congratulations to all the individuals recognized. Business does create community and we are so honored to have you impacting northern Colorado.
