News From the President
Moab Area Chamber of Commerce
As the President of the Chamber of Commerce I have the opportunity to be involved in our Community and the State and would like to pass along some exciting news about the Chamber’s new relationships and events.
This past spring the Moab Area Chamber of Commerce was invited to join a Salt Lake Based program called: Prosperity 20/20. This is an expanding State wide program that focuses on education. The following are the goals for the program:
90% of all Elementary School students to be proficient in Math and Reading
Two-Thirds of Utahans should achieve postsecondary training by 2020
Two out of three Utahans 20 years of age and older to have a skill, trade certificate or college degree.
Prosperity 20/20 is a consolidated effort that will help our State and Communities achieve that goal. I will be attending another meeting mid August and I will update you as to our group’s progress.
Remember; Education is the path to enduring prosperity.
