About 115 attended the annual dinner chamber dinner at Mildale Farms March 4. The guest speaker was David Beaty, head football coach, University of Kansas since 2014.
Beaty talked about earning the trust of your constituents, in his case players, fans, the university, and the state, said Jason Camis, Gardner-Edgerton chamber president. Everything starts with the premise of yes we can do it, now let’s figure out how. Building a program to last, not something that just for a short time, which means you make the right decisions for long-term success.
“I think Coach Beaty’s message fit well with where the chamber is at this point in time. There’s no miracle answer to fix what has gone wrong. The bottom line is we have work to do, and it takes a team approach to accomplish building something significant and worthwhile,” Camis said. “The business community is all on the same team, and it’s time to get to work.
I think in general it’s a great opportunity to celebrate business in our communities. While nothing is set in stone, next year we plan to bring back awards for businesses and individuals to further recognize the great stuff happening in our towns.”
