Chamber luncheon celebrates connections

By Jon Meyer

NAMPA — The second Nampa Chamber of Commerce luncheon of the season drew a crowd to the Nampa Civic Center, where local business leaders discussed challenges and collaboration in the tumultuous economy.

Officials unveiled the second B-informed podcast by Better Business Bureau President and CEO Dale Dixon, titled “Creative growth plans in downtimes.” A follow-up to the debut episode which outlined how to find the best customers and “wow them,” the podcast is available as a free business resource at

“When we see the headlines as business owners, it needs to focus our attention on three key words when it comes to riding out this economic downturn: Motivation, innovation and collaboration,” Dixon said. “Motivation is key when we want to keep our business thriving regardless of what’s going on around us. And I truly believe the opportunity is there to do that. The innovation comes when we are constantly seeking new ideas, when we are challenging the way we think.”

And a perfect example of collaboration: The Better Business Bureau, local chambers of commerce and concerned citizens coming together to improve their communities.

“There’s probably not been a more important time than now,” Chamber President Georgia Bowman-Gunstream said. “We encourage you to take advantage of the things the chamber is doing. We want to continue to give you more information to better your business.”
