Chamber Announces 39th Annual Chairman’s Ball “Celebrating The Heart of Our Community”

By  | 

The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce will host the 39th Annual Chairman’s Ball Celebrating the Heart of Our Community presented by Sam Houston State University on Saturday, August 12 from 6:00 p.m. to Midnight at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott & Conference Center.

“We are pleased to celebrate the service and direction of Linda Leto Head of Lone Star College and her commitment to The Chamber over the past year” says Angela Storseth Cooper, Director of Special Events & Governmental Affairs at The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce. “Traditionally, the Chairman chooses the theme to reflect their personality or style. It was Linda’s Inspiration to, instead, choose a theme that reflected the strength of our community.”

Linda is currently the Associate Vice Chancellor, Workforce Education and Corporate Partnerships at Lone Star College System (LSCS). “As 2016-2017 Chairman of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce, Linda has worked to expand the reach of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce and taken a special interest in establishing a culture of legendary leadership – connecting established leaders with young professionals” says J.J. Hollie, President & CEO of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce. “This is a way for us to say, ‘thank you’ and honor her service and commitment.”

The planning committee of Chamber volunteers make this special event a reality by coordinating decorations, live music, dancing and giveaways. Our team leader this year is Dawn Candy of I Promote You and co-team leader is James Ketchum of Leger Ketchum & Cohoon, PLLC.

“The Chairman’s Ball event is unique in that each table is decorated by Chamber Members interpretation of the theme” says Dawn Candy of I Promote You and team leader of the 39th Annual Chairman’s Ball. “We anticipate the interpretation of Celebrating the Heart of The Community to be very nostalgic and full of gratitude of this place that we get to live, work, play and learn.”
