PROFESSIONAL EDUCATIONAL SERIES BEGINS 1/17

In 2017, the Chamber plans to focus on assisting professionals to reach the next rung on their professional ladder by providing a series of seven professional development workshops to be conducted by retired college professor Robert Ash.

Beginning Jan. 17 and every third Tuesday through July 2017, Robert Ash will bring his expertise as award-winning teacher, presenter, and training consultant to the Chamber meeting room between 2:30-4:30 p.m. for Chamber members and those non-members who want to advance in their career path.

Ash comes to us from Southern California where he taught for 44 years before making the right decision to relocate to Carson City to share his vast talents and knowledge with the business community.

The first workshop on Jan. 17 will focus on examining the use of Authority and Power. For a complete list of workshop topics, go to http://www.carsoncitychamber.com. Each session is $25 with a non-member price of $40 per session. Sign up for all sessions and the seventh session is free.
