Canton Chamber on Business and Leadership
Iíve grown up and reside in Canton. This is where my familyís roots are, so I am familiar with Cantonís rich history and traditions. I attended Spoon River College and received my Bachelors of Science from Northland College in Ashland, Wis. My husband Cole, who works for the City of Canton, and I have an amazing two and a half year old daughter Ava, who keeps us busy. With almost one year under my belt as the Executive Director for the Canton Area Chamber of Commerce, we are continuing to partner with area businesses and community leaders to make Canton a great place to live, work and play!

There is a registration fee of $75.  Refreshments, lunches, and a fun-filled experience will be provided.
