Let me get this out of the way: May the 4th be with you. (“Star Wars” fans will get it. And next year, you’ll get it a LOT from us as May 4 is the date for Chamber Day 2022.) Onward . . .

This is our last pre-event update as we are 37 hours from the end of the event tomorrow evening. So this will be quick, but with a reminder that it’s not too late to sign up for all aspects of the event. Also be sure to check out the Blind Bid items and make your best bid. Here’s a bidding tip: Don’t enter bids ending with predictable numbers. In other words, instead of bidding $500 on something, bid $503 or $507 or some number unlikely to have a duplicate bid. In the case of a tie, you’ll win. (Also remember that even if you’ve already bid, you can go back in and adjust your bid.)

The other big news this morning is the link to the webcasts. One link, but there are TWO webcasts, one for Chamber Day and one for Chamber Eve. Day runs Noon-1PM and Eve runs 7-8PM pre-show and then 8-9PM live program. You don’t need to register and the webcasts are open to everyone. One link covers both:


Last reminder: It's easy to look at all of this and think, "They don't need my help." That's not true. To support our Chamber, click on this direct link to our sign-up page: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dp3rzL7cVCFp1rM
