Ep # 7 YPO @ Nashs Restaurant with Enloe’s Jolene Francis

This episode features Jolene Francis, CFRE, Director of Advancement & Communications of Enloe Medical Center speaking to our Young Professionals Organization Wednesday, February 15th at local establishment Nash’s Restaurant.

Since 1979, Jolene has enjoyed a professional career in both for-profit and non-profit industries of Chico.  Born at Enloe Medical Center, she feels very much at home guiding the activities of the Enloe Foundation, Marketing and Communications Departments as Director of Advancement and Communications.  She is also a Vice Chair on our Chico Chamber Board of Directors.

Listen, as Jolene tells the history of Enloe, all of the many awesome services they offer, and some endearing patient stories. I know some of our audience had a tear in their eye.

Ep # 6 – Chico Business Summit

Episode #6, features our 2017 Business Summit & State of the City Address co-hosted with the City of Chico, Friday, January 27th .

As you will learn in this episode, from where we sit in 2017, things certainly look better after a bit of a wild ride.  However, the State of the City Address was delivered by our new Mayor with a cautionary tone.  Growth, while on the horizon, should be slow and steady and will require continued sacrifices in the levels and expediency of City services. 

On the bright side the Chico Economic Snapshot, produced by Golden Valley Bank, President & CEO Mark Francis, reflected optimism and steady upward projections in most of our key economic indicators. Meanwhile our Executive Director, Melanie Bassett of the Downtown Business Association reported 27 businesses opened downtown in 2016. Downtown Chico is also slated to add 6 new restaurants in 2017! 

Thank you to our Legacy Partners Allevity HR & Payroll, Golden Valley Bank, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and Tri Counties Bank.
