Chamber holding annual meeting on Wedesday

The Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce is holding its annual meeting Wednesday morning at The Commons.

Cindy Frey, the Chamber president, explains this is a good time to look at the community’s achievements and how it can improve itself.

She related the annual meeting’s goal to a proverb from former Cummins CEO J. Irwin Miller, saying that we should always be in competition with our ancestors.

This year’s keynote speaker is Drew Klacik, senior policy analyst with Indiana University Public Policy Institute.

Frey said several awards will be given including Community Project of the Year, the Maverick Awards for high school students, the Edna Folger Award for an outstanding teacher and a Community Servant of the Year award.

The event starts at 11:30 a.m. at The Commons and it is sold out.
