Chamber Chatter

Lori_0601October is my favorite time of the year. There’s a chill in the air, the colors are breathtaking, it’s football season, and the KACC has events all over the calendar! In fact, we have 15 events scheduled – breakfasts, lunches, weekends…we’ve got something for everyone!

The 4th Annual KACC/KSU Tip-Off Breakfast at the M.A.C. Center will be on Thursday, October 16th. Join coaches Rob Senderoff and Danny O’Banion, and members of their respective staffs to hear what you can expect from their teams during the 2014-15 season.  Call 330.673.9855 for details!

On Thursday, October 23rd, NEOMED will host a multi-chamber Business After Hours and show off their beautiful, new NEOMED Education & Wellness Center. Take advantage of this great opportunity to meet members from the other Portage County chambers, and check out their new facility.

Before you know it, we’ll be celebrating the best in Kent’s business community with our annual IMMYs, Small Business of the Year and W.W. Reed Medal for Public Service awards. It’s not too early to start thinking of nominees to submit for consideration. Applications are available at in the APPLICATIONS tab. The deadline for nominations is November 5th.

Once again this year the KACC in partnership with the KSU Libraries and the Kent Free Library, will provide books for children attending the Festival of Lights on Saturday, December 6th. Last year’s Penguin book was a HUGE hit. This year, the book entitled, Bears, will be given to each child as he/she exits the gazebo after seeing Santa Claus. To defer the cost of the books, donations are being accepted. If you’d like to make a donation, please contact the KACC office – – or – 330.673.9855 for more information.

As always, thank you for your continued support of the KACC – it is GREATLY appreciated!!!
