    A Message from the Board Chair
    Tammy Friederichs - Friederichs & Thompson P.A.

    The Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau is poised for a great 2017.  This year, we are focused on leadership.  We encourage you, our members, to think of the Chamber 1st . . .

    First in Chamber members supporting other members with referrals, mentorship, and sharing information.  Whether you’re referring a friend or family member or looking for goods/services for yourself, look for a Chamber member first.  A complete directory is available for online searching on the Chamber’s newly-designed, interactive website. 

    First in the Chamber supporting its members with networking and social events, including the Annual Dinner, the Holiday Party, monthly Lunch Mob, quarterly Lunch and Learn, regular Business After Hours, and other events.  These events provide a unique opportunity to meet colleagues and build professional and personal relationships.

    First in providing leadership to advocate and support Hastings businesses and local economic development.  Whether you’re interested in local developments or business opportunities, look to the Chamber for information.  Check out our new website, which has many great features and a wealth of information.  

    First in partnering with many others for advancing tourism in Hastings.  In a collaboration with The University of MN Extension and Explore MN, the Chamber and the Tourism Bureau launched a program that will assess Hastings tourism assets, uncover opportunities for tourism development, and identify action steps for increasing tourism traffic.

    First in presenting Rivertown Days—a vibrant part of Hastings’ summer—which has enjoyed success because of the hard work of the Chamber, the support of the City’s leadership and personnel, the sponsorships from local businesses, and the volunteerism of countless people. 

    On behalf of the Chamber board, staff, and volunteers, thank you for your support to continue the long tradition of leadership that makes this organization successful.
