First, you can view a gallery of photos from the event here.

Second, here’s the Opening Video, sponsored by Bachmeier Carpet One Floor and Home. From the comedic use of the 380 Express bus to the cameo by Ron Corbett and Doug Neumann of the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance in the final seconds, this one set the stage for a fun night.


Next, here’s what the Chamber accomplished in 2018 — and what it’s planning for 2019.

Finally, the Chamber announced a call to action in support of workforce development, starting at the student level. As part of its pledge to drastically increase internships, the Chamber shared this video from Kate Moreland of ICR Iowa.
