Edina Chamber of Commerce
Don’t have the time off for this year’s impromptu trip to the French Riviera? Fret not, for you can still enjoy “A Night in Monaco” at this month’s Emerald Gala. The glitzy event is an annual benefit for the Edina Chamber of Commerce.
“Last year’s event was a huge success,” says Chamber president Lori Syverson. “At the end of the night we had 100 guests who did not want the evening to end. This year we added Las Vegas-style gaming, a photo booth and auction bidding via your mobile phone.”
Last month, the Edina Chamber of Commerce and the Edina Community Foundation co-hosted a “CEO Roundtable,” an event to promote economic growth in Edina. The roundtable’s keynote speaker was Kathy Tunheim, the senior advisor to Gov. Mark Dayton on job creation. Tunheim addressed issues that affect the entire state’s business growth, and afterward five local CEOs discussed how Edina has responded to these demands at a local level.
