Cordova Business Empowerment Summit:

Cordova Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the Cordova Bussiness Empowerment Summit. Grow your business knowledge and confidence as well as your professional network at this twice-annual hybrid event. Held every April and November at the Cordova Center, the Cordova Business Empowerment Summit aims to facilitate a gathering of Cordova business leaders and provide them with education and guidance to uplevel their organization on multiple fronts. Including vital resources to our business community, the multi-day event provides actionable advice and realistic resources to help businesses grow sustainably and support one another. Tickets for Cordova Chamber’s Business Empowerment Summit include an annual Chamber membership. All classes will be offered in-person and virtually, with recordings available.

The chamber has developed a new membership structure that will complement this event, allowing members to pick from a plethora of in-person business classes being held at the two Business Empowerment Summits in November and April or virtually on-demand and choose the promotion and advertising options that will most benefit their business or organization. This new membership structure also opens up some of our most coveted benefits to ALL members! These changes are a direct result of the Chamber’s member satisfaction survey and a response to the needs expressed by the business community. Cordova Chamber’s Business Empowerment Summit is a keystone element of this new membership investment program, and each 2023 Chamber membership includes entrance into the Summit.

“Our intention is to build capacity for Cordova’s current and future leaders to catalyze growth and encourage collaboration within our talented community”, said Cathy Renfeldt, the Executive Director of the Chamber. A combination of local and Alaskan experts are slotted to present at the Chamber’s Business Empowerment Summit, providing practical and hands-on guidance to increase local business acumen. “We believe an empowered leader grows empowered organizations, and we want to be the kindling to their fire! This event has the capacity to boost our local economy, bolster our workforce, and give our business leaders the confidence to grow,” said Events and Member Services Coordinator, Karen Deaton Perry. 

Cordova Chamber of Commerce along with our Presenting Partners welcome a plethora of experts focused on informing and equipping Cordova businesses with current economic impacts & trends as well as burgeoning opportunities to grow.
