Thanks from the Summit Chamber


On behalf of the Summit Chamber Board of Directors, Diplomats and Staff, we wish to extend an enormous thank you to all who participated in and supported last week’s Annual Meeting & Awards Breakfast and the Celebrate Silver with the Summit 25th Anniversary Gala. Nearly 120 people attended the breakfast meeting at the Silverthorne Pavilion and enjoyed a wonderful presentation, “Making a Difference Over 25 Years”, by keynote speaker Wayne Brunetti, retired chairman, president and chief executive officer of Xcel Energy. Past Chamber President, Loren Stone, covered highlights of the past year and current President, Eric Turner, gave the financial report and a look at the Chamber’s vision for the future. A special addition to the morning was the annoncement of the Chamber’s group health plan presented by Ed Pittaway of Integrated Healthplan Solutions. An historical retrospective video, produced by Event Production Services, was shown in honor of the Chamber’s 25th anniversary.
