Established to honor individuals with a longstanding contribution to our community, the Collins Award has been a beacon of recognition since its inception in 1977. The Chamber is proud to announce Connie and Doug Dohn, Dohn Construction as our 2023 Collins Award Winner. 

Founded in 1992, Doug and Connie Dohn set out with the desire to change the general contracting industry through valuing clients, team members, and subcontractors. It was also their desire to work locally so that their employees could be home with their families each night. What started as a small construction company quickly grew as word spread about Dohn’s philosophy and approach to the construction process. 31 years later Dohn Construction has flourished, growing to 60 team members and completing over 15 million square feet of projects.

Established to recognize individuals who embody a steadfast commitment to advocating for free enterprise and better communities through sound economic principles. the David May Advocacy Award was named in honor of former Chamber President & CEO David May.  

The Chamber is proud to recognize Sharie Grant as our 2023 David May Advocacy Award winner.

Your writing is a fingerprint: AI doesn’t have one (neither do serial killers)

May 15 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

This workshop will use basic principles of writing to help you understand AI as a writing tool. Technology can support our writing but can’t replace our input or our understanding of what to do with the output. In this session, you’ll learn to effectively use technology for the writing that you do–email, newsletters, marketing material, website content, etc. You will also get the opportunity to practice with us!

You will leave this workshop with 1) a template you can use right away and 2) feedback on 1 message you bring with you (make sure to choose something ahead of time to focus on).
