Tickets available for Chamber´s
Annual Meeting on Oct. 20

There´s something funny happening with the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting this year – improv comedy group The Second City will be the featured entertainment as the Chamber celebrates its 109th year.

The Chamber´s Annual Meeting launches the one-year term of 2015-16 Chair Paul Bruflat, CNA Surety, and recognizes the efforts of the 2014-15 Chair of the Board Dana Dykhouse, First PREMIER Bank. At the Annual Meeting, the Chamber will share the priorities for the 2015-16 year and the contributions of retiring directors will also be acknowledged.

Last year the Chamber expanded the annual event to the new Denny Sanford PREMIER Center to rave reviews. The event will again feature more of an entertainment feel with the performance by Second City. The Chicago-based comedy group has been entertaining audiences and churning out North America´s most famous comedians for more than 55 years. Second City alumni have gone on to act in movies and sitcoms, including Saturday Night Live; just some of their illustrious performers include: Jim and John Belushi, Harold Ramis, Gilda Radner, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Tim Meadows, Bonnie Hunt, Jeff Garlin, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Ed Helms, Steve Carell and Steven Colbert.

Kim Burma, Midcontinent Communications, is chair of the event. The event will be held at the Sioux Falls Convention Center and the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. All seats are general admission. The cost is $80 per person for Chamber members, which includes the entertainment portion of the evening as well as networking and food prior to Second City´s performance.
