2016 EDUCATIONAL SERIES- Call for Speaking Interest
MHACC is proud to announce that we will be rolling out  a new educational series called 
Ask the Expert in 2016.  The Member Services Committee suggested topics of interest for the 2016 ATE Educational Series that  hopefully will be of interest to you and your business. Our goal is to offer 4 ATE seminars during 2016 with our inaugural seminar happening in February. 
This is a great opportunity to share your knowledge with other Chamber members. This is a new series for MHACC, but other Chambers report having from 15-60 participants at each ATE session.  Although sessions are not a commercial about your specific business, they are a great way for you to become known by other members as an expert and a resource in your profession. Past presentations have been most successful when they:
  1. Offer clear, actionable takeaways for the participants
  2. Promote active participation throughout the presentation
  3. Answer the question, "How will attending this session benefit my business and/or me personally?"
  4. Focus on small business (the majority of Mount Horeb Chamber members have 1-5 employees).
