It's no coincidence that our Membership BBQ (this Thursday at Community Business Bank) lands in the middle of National Chamber of Commerce Week. We believe in the work that a Chamber of Commerce provides for its business community- and the community at large- and we would not be able to do the work we accomplish without all of our members. Our mission remains to be a catalyst for business growth and a champion of our community. We have successfully done this in many arenas because we are also a convener of leaders and influencers. This Annual Membership BBQ is a small, but significant, token of our gratitude and we hope that each and every one of you can attend.
This Thursday, we will be serving all the Lockeford sausage, Lakewood brats, assorted salads from Bueno Italiano, and dessert from Tree House that members can eat. We are also excited to welcome Five Window Beer Company, Lodi Vintners Association, Wingstop, and Farmer Boys to this event- as all of these establishments will have tastes of their beer, wine, and menu items. Each Chamber Member received two COMPLIMENTARY tickets, and if you want to bring your employees, we say "The More the Merrier." There's more than enough food and beverages to go around and each additional employee is only $5! We thank Community Business Bank for hosting this event, as well as our Chamber members who are participating. The weatherman says it's going to be a perfect 78 degree for an evening full of networking and fun. Afterwards, enjoy conversation and view some of the member booths on display. The BBQ historically had attendance at about 400 people. It's a great place to make connections- and of course the food and beverages are local Lodi favorites.
We also invite the membership to an event we are hosting this Wednesday morning at the Chamber: Coffee with the City Manager. Measure L is on the ballot this year, and we encourage as many of you as possible to meet with Steve Schwabauer and learn about what Measure L could mean for our city. We will have coffee brewing.

Do not forget to RSVP or purchase your additional tickets through LodiChamber.com or the link that has been emailed to your Chamber Representative for the BBQ. We are looking forward to celebrating with you AND celebrating National Chamber of Commerce Week.
