Members of the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce will now have the opportunity to continue their professional development with the support of SCC’s expert faculty and other local professionals through educational seminars every other month.
“Scottsdale Community College has demonstrated its commitment to furthering unique educational opportunities in Scottsdale that help develop and advance the workforce in our community,” says SCC President Eric Leshinskie. “With the many cutting-edge businesses that the Scottsdale Chamber counts among its members, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to share our accomplished faculty’s insights directly with these professionals.”
“Partnering with Scottsdale Community College to build on our Chamber University speaker series will be a great benefit to our business community,” said Mark Stanton, Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce President. “The Chamber continually looks for subject matter experts to help businesses in various areas of marketing, sales, IT, and other best practices to grow business opportunities.”
Chamber University offers exclusive access to industry-leading speakers who bring the newest insights into the skills and domains that matter most to businesspeople in Scottsdale.
