On September 4th, the Wyoming State Chambers will be hosting their Fall Conference at the Cam-Plex. The event will bring the Wyoming Economic Development Association and Wyoming Main Street programs together for three days of networking and seminars.
Not only is this an opportunity for the Campbell County Chamber to show other Wyoming Chambers around Gillette, it will be a good community building experience. Keynote speaker Patrick McGaughey, and guest speakers like Sam Chapman from the National Association for Business Economists will be presenting to a combination of organizations that work to improve Wyoming every day.
"We're exited to host, as Gillette has not been the site of this conference for many years," says Executive Director, Gail Lofing. "This will be a chance for people from outside of Campbell County to see what we've done to improve our community."
Attendees will be touring the new Area 59 facility at Gillette College and businesses like L&H Industrial. Though the conference is Wednesday through Friday, you can choose to attend just one day, or even specifically just the Economic Development portion of the event.

"We've never been so excited to see dirt moved in our entire lives," said Gillette Golf Club board member Steve Crow on Wednesday afternoon.
The 9-hole course is set to become a (hopefully, lucky) 13-hole course, with construction beginning on an expansion of the local golf club that will include a new driving range, short game practice area, and 4 additional holes. The long-term plan is to have a full back nine, but the remaining five fairways will have to be added later down the line, as it will require going under Garner Lake Road and over Donkey Creek.
As it is, the first phase of the new expansion has been decades in the making. The new driving range will border the neighboring Energy Capital Sports Complex , and the grounds will become accessible both from the Golf Club and the softball fields.
"We're on our way to a first-class facility," Crow said during today's groundbreaking.
