Guest Speaker

John Tayer, President and C.E.O. of the Boulder Chamber

 

What John will present

The Boulder Chamber is proud to announce the launch of “Boulder Together,” a multi-year initiative designed to make positive progress in three areas of economic and community need: affordable housing, mobility and workforce development.

 

The Boulder Together program has been in development over the last two years through conversations with a wide spectrum of community members and business leaders. We found great consistency in the feedback we received from these stakeholder groups, with particular concern about the impacts that high housing costs and difficult commutes are having on our workforce.

 

“These have been mounting issues of concern for our community," Boulder Chamber President John Tayer said. "Housing and transportation challenges are now starting to have an impact on the ability of businesses to access the talent they need to succeed. It's time for business leadership in addressing these issues."

“Boulder Together” is a very important private sector effort to address critical regional issues affecting our communities and market areas.

Coming October 3, 2018, Boulder City Council Member and Realtor® Jill Grano
