Women In Business Session

December 15, 2023 - Zions Bank Technology Center Midvale, UT

Talk about power and poise. Strength and determination is what we heard from each and every woman represented on the panel. Our chamber board member and moderator, Sui Lang Panoke, was on fire with her ability to bring the rawness of business as well as the stamina of what it means to be a Pacific Islander woman in this day and age. 

Holiday Market

November 18, 2023 - Embassy Suites South Jordan, UT

The success from our 1st event led to holding one right in time for the holidays. Even more so before Black Friday. It was a cold and rainy day, but that certainly didn't keep shoppers away. Our vendors came and thanks to Tamara Vaifanua with KSL 5 News, we had an amazing turnout and support from the community. Living up to our goal of bringing business to our businesses, we accomplished that and even more.
