Home > Community Education > People You Should Know Talks

The last few years the Rockford Chamber of Commerce has produced a list of "People You Should Know” in the Rockford community. These forty-one honorees have shown leadership in their respective industries. Rockford University and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce have joined together to give the Rockford community an opportunity to get to know these people through weekly talks. These talks will be 21 minutes or less with an opportunity for questions afterward. Seating is limited to 50 attendees on a first-come first-serve basis and registration is required. To register go to the Rockford Chamber of Commerce’s website at www.RockfordChamber.com/events. If you are unable to attend for any reason, the talks will be videotaped and put on the Rockford University website. If you have any questions please contact Lauren Kepler at lkepler@rockford.edu or 815-226-4021. We hope to see you there!
