Major employers forum

The goal of the Major Employers Forum is to foster open and frank communication among CEO's, company presidents, and major employers who are members of the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce. The group meets quarterly in a setting that affords on-going contacts and provides a confidential relationship among the group's members. This group best serves companies with 50+ employees.

Registration for the group opens after the last meeting of the year (May). To join the Major Employers Forum, contact Kellie or Kelti.
