Chamber to host State of the Community Breakfast at WSCC

VICTORY TOWNSHIP — The Chamber Alliance of Mason County (formerly the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce) will present its fourth annual State of the Community Breakfast on Wednesday, February 1 at West Shore Community College.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased on the Chamber’s website. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Guest speaker for the event will be TaRita D. Johnson, senior vice president of talent and diversity at The Right Place, the Chamber’s partner in economic development. Prior to joining The Right Place in October 2021, Johnson served as the director of the career center at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, where she was responsible for the center’s overall mission to equip students to succeed on their lifelong vocational path. She oversaw the center’s career coaching, employer relations, event and marketing analytics, and assessment. She was responsible for cross-divisionally creating and launching a career and life skills program, Calvin LifeWork.

For this session, Johnson will provide an economic forecast for the Mason County area, along with an introduction and overview of the complex issue of talent retention. She will address many underlying factors affecting retention and begin to dispel worker stereotypes that have become commonplace.

“We know high priority for our business community is talent and workforce and we are thrilled to have someone like TaRita Johnson join us to share insights and best practices.” said Brandy Miller, Chamber Alliance president/CEO. 

Miller will also present economic development highlights of the past year in Mason County, as well as changes within the Chamber organization. 

The State of the Community Breakfast will take place from 8:30 to 10 a.m. in the North Lounge of the WSCC Administration Building. Cost is $25 to attend (breakfast buffet included), and pre-registration is required.
