Workshops & Forums

 

TahoeChamber strives to bring the best opportunities to the local business community to help them further educate themselves on topics such as business development, tax law, healthcare reform, the economy and more.  These luncheons and forums address pressing topics in our community and are scheduled as needed.  Past topics have included ADA Compliance, Yelp Reviews, TripAdvisor, and the State of the Economy.

Our partnerships across the region give us access to some of the best speakers and facilitators in the business.  We want those speakers to come to you, to give you the same access to training and development that those big city businesses have! 

Keep an eye on our Events Calendar for updates on future workshops and seminars.

Healthcare Forum

Whether you are an individual, small or large business owner, employed or unemployed, it’s important to understand the upcoming changes in health care. Barton Health and TahoeChamber hosted two separate Healthcare Reform workshops at Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) in June 2013.

Led by qualified industry specialists, these two informative employer and community focused workshops provided Healthcare Reform education to area employers and the South Lake Tahoe community-at-large.
