Busy week here at the Alliance! Hosting three ribbon cuttings and announcing our Business of the Month was a wonderful way to welcome in Spring.

We appreciate the support for this great new addition. The LIVE stream has 1K views so far and has reached 2K Facebook users. I enjoyed reading about it in the Daily Independent too! Great article!

We had a wonderful time hosting Crescent Moon Properties’ Ribbon Cutting on Monday. The 2nd Floor is officially open! The LIVE stream has 1K views as of this afternoon.

The 2nd Floor is a shared office/creative space for professionals looking for a place to call their own. Each tenant has a spacious office to themselves with unlimited access to the common area complete with a large conference table, bar/liquor locker, pool table, and conversation pit. We love the unique, mid-century modern decor! Special thanks to the city officials that took time out of their busy schedules to come celebrate with us! Commissioners Blanton, Clark, Gute, & Spriggs— We appreciate you!!

February 26th we hosted the Girls Scouts ribbon cutting at Ashland Town Center. The event was a total success! WSAZ, WCHS, and the Daily Independent all reported on it, and Mayor Perkins, Commissioner Gute and Commissioner Blanton attended, as well. There have been 1.1K LIVE stream video views for the Girl Scouts so far.

Mark your calendars for March 18th! We’re continuing our Lunch & Learn Series: Things You Ought to Know with an important & timely presentation from Leigh Latherow, Attorney & Partner at Van Antwerp Attorneys, LLP. RSVP required.

Today, Buff City Soap is using our conference room to conduct interviews to staff their new location on Diederich Boulevard. This is an awesome example of the many ways our chamber can be utilized! We have a ribbon cutting scheduled for Buff City on April 22nd.
