The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its 113th Annual Meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. The event is the largest gathering of the year of local business leaders and is an opportunity to network and form new connections, while celebrating the good work that has been accomplished in our businesses and community.

The Chamber’s Annual Meeting launches the one-year term of the incoming chair, Bobbi Thury, founder and attorney of Legacy Law Firm, P.C. Thury will take over the Chamber’s top volunteer position Oct. 1, following 2018-19 Chair of the Board Tim Sturdevant, Sturdevant’s Auto Parts. Also at the meeting, the Chamber will share priorities for the coming year and acknowledge the contributions of retiring directors.

The event will culminate with a keynote address from Sekou Andrews, the Poetic Voice. A schoolteacher turned actor, recording artist, two-time national poetry slam champion and entrepreneur, Sekou Andrews helps the world’s largest organizations deliver relevant information through his innovative and inspiring style of presentation. Attendees can expect a dynamic presentation full of actionable insights to help them embrace disruption as a means to innovation and growth.

The 113th Annual Meeting is sponsored by ISG, Sanford Health and Wells Fargo Bank. Corey Weide, The Venrick Goeman Group at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, is serving as chair of the Annual Meeting and Jay Rasmussen, Journey Group Companies, is leading the ticket sales team.

"This is our night to come together as a Sioux Falls business community,” said Weide. “We’ll celebrate the successes of our community, highlight the work of our chamber and share the positive vision for the year ahead."
