Hutchinson Area Chamber and Convention and Visitor’s Bureau
by Bill Corby
As the Hutchinson Area Chamber and Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, we offer many opportunities for our members to be involved as a volunteer. We also provide many forms of education for our business members and their staff. Starting each September, spanning nine months, is the Hutchinson Leadership Institute. This is designed to help develop the up-and-coming leaders of our community. Our newest venture is Dynamic Sales – A Training Miniseries, which started in October, and was designed to help those in sales to develop the right habits and to build on their current sales abilities. This miniseries is being presented by six successful business people from our own community who are willing to offer their expertise and experience in an effort to help other businesses grow. Our Business After Hours, presented monthly by the Hutchinson Ambassadors, is a great networking tool for any member business and their staff.
