June 19: Citrus Heights ‘Chamber U’ seminar to focus on health

Sentinel staff report–
The Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce is hosting an upcoming seminar at city hall on the topic of “how to get and stay healthy,” featuring three local presenters with expertise in fitness, meal preparation and wellness.

The hour-and-a-half seminar will be held from 8-9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 19, in the Community Room at Citrus Heights City Hall. Attendees will be provided with practical tips for “health and wellness at work and home,” according to Cendrinne DeMattei, the local chamber’s executive director.

Presenters include Evie Turner, from California Family Fitness, who is slated to present on “fitness for the whole family,” along with training options. Michael Potter, from Get Wellness Center on Sunrise Boulevard, will cover detoxification and “how to cancer free your environment.” And Lynn Taymourian, a local Tupperware representative, will discuss “how to use the Tupperware systems and solutions for nutritious meal options, quick meal prep and storage.”

The event is free for members of the Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce, or $15 for non-members. The Chamber requests those planning to attend RSVP before noon on June 18, by emailing or calling the Chamber office at (916) 722-4545.

The Chamber began hosting seminar series last year as “brown bag seminars,” but re-branded the events as “Chamber U” for 2018. Past seminars have included social media 101, a cyber security presentation by an FBI agent, and crime prevention tips presented by the Citrus Heights Police Department’s Problem-Oriented Policing Unit.

DeMattei previously told The Sentinel that Chamber U events will be held every other month in 2018 and are designed to be “learning seminars where businesses and the community can come in and get informed on topics that affect them.” Typically presentations last about an hour, followed by Q&A.

Upcoming seminars this year include a SMUD presentation on energy saving resources for businesses in August, and a seminar on referral marketing in October that will feature Mickey Griffith of Asentiv Sacramento.

Chamber U events are hosted by the Chamber of Commerce with support from the City of Citrus Heights, which provides free space for the events at city hall and also annually provides the Chamber with a $10,000 sponsorship from the city’s economic development fund.
