April Welsh, new chair of the Polk County Cham­ber of Com­merce, re­cently led a lively “talk ses­sion” in the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s Rock­mart of­fice, 133 South Mar­ble Street.

The Cham­ber Talk is one of the new 2016 ini­tia­tives and is de­signed to get mem­bers and com­mu­nity part­ners in­volved in a roundtable dis­cus­sion of ideas and top­ics.

A sim­i­lar ses­sion was sched­uled in Cedar­town at 609 South Main Street. Ad­di­tional meet­ings are sched­uled at 6 p.m. May 23, Au­gust 10, Septem­ber 19, Novem­ber 6 and De­cem­ber 19.

Welsh re­minded the group of the Cham­ber’s 2016 theme, “Pro­mot­ing Pros­per­ity!”

“We un­der­stand the im­por­tance of part­ner­ships. We know col­lab­o­ra­tions al­low us to in­crease our ef­fec­tive­ness,” she said. “The Cham­ber will lead by ex­am­ple in pro­mot­ing team­work and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial out­comes for all who live and do busi­ness here.”

Dur­ing the talk ses­sion, she in­vited those present to place ideas for dis­cus­sion on the ta­ble.

“Your can­did­ness and in­sight on ways to help im­prove the qual­ity of life in Polk County are in­valu­able,” she said.
