How will anticipated minimum wage hikes and other new laws actually impact workers, businesses and the community? And, what will the changing landscape of commercial properties in Corvallis mean for smaller businesses? Can collaboration and partnership become more vibrant in our city?
At the City Club of Corvallis meeting on February 8, hear from new Corvallis Chamber of Commerce President Cooper Whitman and Community Independent Business Alliance President Cindee Lolik. Both will field questions and offer insights from inside the core of our local business community. They’ll share what impacts we can expect from state and federal laws and trends. Corvallis City Club President Steven Schultz will moderate.
Lolik is in her second year as president of the alliance and is also the general manager for First Alternative Co-Op. Whitman is a native Oregonian who previously headed a chamber office in North Dakota.
The meeting is free and open to the public and will begin at 12 noon and conclude by 1:15. Doors will open at 11:30 am at the Boys & Girls Club, 1112 NW Circle. A catered lunch (meatloaf, Thai cabbage salad, baked potatoes) is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers. To reserve lunch, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon, Friday, February 5. You can also pay for lunch online with your credit card.
