Quad Cities Chamber events go beyond simply exchanging business cards. When you attend a Chamber event, you'll have opportunities to grow valuable business relationships, advocate for a stronger business climate, ensure your young staff members are engaged and want to stay in the region, and support and enjoy our vibrant community. 

Take a look at what’s on our calendar in April to see how you can build your network this month:

Executives Club: Community Change Makers Panel: Inspiring Youth, Empowering a Workforce
April 6 • 7:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
TaxSlayer Center, 1201 River Drive, Moline
Cost: $25 for members / Program exclusively for Presidents, CEO's and Executives

Q2030 is a rally cry to increase talent, jobs and economic opportunity for all. As employers report a workforce shortage, our community must join together to prepare youth today to fill the jobs demands of tomorrow. Hear from this panel of community members who took matters into their own hands to inspire big goals and provide young people with the skills and experience they’ll need to be the leaders of tomorrow. You’ll hear about what they’re doing, the impact of their work, and how the business community can elevate their efforts to create more change.
