In addition, new board members took their seats at the April meeting and outgoing volunteers were thanked for the service in moving things forward to help promote tourism and a healthy business community in Saguache.
One of the chamber’s popular new additions is the Speaker Program which continues tomorrow Tuesday, May 3, with Greg Mills, CEO of Aventa Credit Union.
Aventa was established nearly 60 years ago as the Colorado Springs Employees Credit Union. Today, renamed to reflect its geographic spread, Aventa serves over 21,000 members throughout Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and the San Luis Valley. Come and learn more about this member-owned, not-for-profit financial institution and how it came to reside in the beautifully refurbished bank building on 4th Street in downtown Saguache. Come and discover the valuable insight that Mr. Mills will share with attendees.
The Saguache Chamber monthly meetings (as always) are open to the public. This program will be on May 3 at 6 p.m. at the County Road & Bridge at 305 3rd Street in Saguache.
