“As a second-generation family-owned business and heart-led leaders in the event industry, it’s very important to us that we create a great place to work for our employees. That includes making sure we value people for more than the job they do, understanding their family situations, and learning about how we can best support them both their personal and professional lives. Thank you to the Chamber for your expertise in starting this initiative!”
