Sentinel staff report–
The Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an upcoming seminar about energy efficiency as part of its “Chamber U” series, promising to offer money-saving tips and ideas for businesses.

The hour-and-a-half seminar will be held from 8-9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 21, in the Community Room at Citrus Heights City Hall. The event will include a feature presentation by SMUD, along with information about security, recycling, and social media, according to Wes Ervin, who serves as co-chair for the Chamber’s Economic Development Committee.

Although non-members have been charged for past Chamber U events, a flier for Tuesday’s event says the event will be free for anyone in attendance. The Chamber requests those planning to attend RSVP before noon on Aug. 20, 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.

Cendrinne DeMattei, the Chamber’s executive director, 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.

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.
