February is the shortest month of the year but that does not mean it canít be chocked full of events and opportunities!
Continuing education and professional development is an important piece to a fulfilling and successful career. We are happy to announce the first installment of the 2018 Lunch & Learn Series presented by Northwest Specialty Hospital on Friday, Feb. 2. Keynote presenter is Dr. Edwards, Occupational Medicine.

We are honored to have Dr. MacLennan present to our membership, and look forward to hearing what exciting opportunities are being offered at North Idaho College. We are grateful to our lunch host, Community 1st Bank.
March 21 is our Annual Reverse Job Fair presented by the Business & Education Committee. Last year seniors from Post Falls High School, New Vision High School and Genesis Preparatory Academy were awarded $12,000 worth of college scholarships funded by local businesses.
We couldnít be more proud of this annual event, hosted, planned and executed by the Business & Education Committee. Event Chair Jessie Morrow, Kootenai County Fire & Rescue, is well underway with planning the event.
We are grateful to the many businesses and leaders that have participated over the years, and are continually looking for interviewers, event volunteers and scholarships for the students. Not only is this a great opportunity for the high school seniors, but also for the business leaders who participate. It is always encouraging to see the creativity and talent displayed at this event.
