Ep 10 – YPO Leadership Luncheon: “AG Panel”

Chico Chamber Young Professionals Organization Leadership Luncheon: “Ag Panel”

Manzanita Place, Chico

Episode 10 is the first panel format featuring Toni Scott, Morrison & Company, Grey Foster, Butte Yfr, Mark Pierce, North Valley Ag Services, and Colleen Cecil, Butte County Farm Bureau.  Our Chico Chamber YPO has been very proactive this year connecting with the local Ag Community.  In March, they co-hosted a Mixer with the Butte County Young Farmers & Ranchers at Almendra Winery & Distillery, and a dinner in November 2016. In this episode, you will hear how important technology, water, and legislative challenges all affect agriculture from labor to water regulations. A couple fun facts: 1. California surpasses any other state in ag production. In 2015 California’s farms and ranches received approximately $47 billion for their output. 2. California is the #1 dairy state. 3. One job in ag = 2-5 jobs in the economy!

Ep 9 Assemblyman James Gallagher Updates Community On The Oroville Spillway

Thursday, March 30th Assemblyman James Gallagher spoke to our Chico Chamber of Commerce members about the future of water in the North State, his efforts to establish emergency funding for infrastructure improvements, and a November 1st timeline for the temporary Oroville Spillway fixes. Assemblyman James Gallagher also mentioned he would like to see a 5 year infrastructure plan in place.

During the week of the evacuations, it was wonderful to see our own Chico community step up to help in any way they could.

As Gallagher mentions, “Oroville Dam is a great benefit for the whole state in terms of flood control”.

Ep # 6 – 2017 Business Summit And State of the City Address

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!
