Traditionally presented as a special professional development seminar, this year we’ve been inspired by the TED Talk concept. Thus the format for this special roundtable will be several W.A.C.E. members giving short, provocative talks on topics related to and important to the future of chambers. Each talk will be followed by a short discussion period facilitated by W.A.C.E. Vice Chair Todd Sanders, the President/CEO of the Greater Phoenix (AZ) Chamber.
"Civic Engagement Still Matters"
Marlene Carney, Irwindale (CA) Chamber
"The Triple Bottom Line Chamber"
Paul Holden, Burnaby (BC) Board of Trade
"Recreating the Chamber of Commerce"

"Resourceful - Relevant - Results: Become THE "GoTo" Organization"
Tom Pierson, ACE, Tacoma-Pierce County (WA) Chamber
"Chambers of Commerce and Social Responsibility"
Katie Simmons, Chico (CA) Chamber
