Our guest speaker will be Kingston native, well known author and nationally known motivational speaker Jay Rifenbary. Jay’s address is entitled "Return to Your Core - A Blueprint for Character and Leadership Development." This will be a great opportunity for local businesses and organizations to inspire, invest in, and enhance the personal and professional development of their employees and leaders.
The fact that Jay will be speaking a week before Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season is also meaningful since Jay emphasizes the values of gratitude, family, and servant leadership. All of those, especially during this time, are needed now more than ever.
In addition, the Chamber will be welcoming several veterans, members of the VFW Honor Guard, who will be wearing new uniforms paid for by more than a dozen generous Chamber Members. Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan and Kingston Veteran's Association President Bill Forte will be given an opportunity to thank those local businesses.
Chamber Breakfast Meetings are a great way to network with other local business leaders and stay on top of current events.
In order to provide adequate social distancing, a maximum of six people will be seated at each table and tables will be appropriately separated. All attendees should wear masks until seated and may be asked to show proof of vaccination.
