Thank you to everyone who attended the Hanford Update Membership Luncheon on May 4.
Brooke Myrland, Workforce & Education Manager at the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce (TCRCC), was selected as one of 18 chamber professionals to participate in a six-month fellowship program on economic mobility facilitated by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE).
The Fellowship for Economic Mobility is an immersive program that provides chamber of commerce professionals education and tools to work within workforce ecosystems and help to remove barriers to access living wage jobs. Fellows will be better positioned to support workers and employers in adapting to the new realities of work.
“Economic mobility is essential to unlocking broader economic prosperity,” said Sheree Anne Kelly, ACCE’s president & CEO. “Chambers of commerce are catalytic leaders ideally suited to both address pressing talent challenges for low-income workers and ensure thriving and equitable local economies.”
