A Multi-Chamber event was held on Wednesday, February 20th at Triton College’s Cafe 64. It was well attended with attendees from almost 22 chambers. Food was prepared by the culinary IMG_0502 IMG_0507 IMG_0510art students from Triton. The spotlight of the event was a presentation on the importance of utilizing sustainable practices in the community and one’s business.  Participants learned about how green business practices can impact the operation of their businesses and organizations.
