Once the 100th Annual Meeting was done, we all gave a big sigh of relief and then realized we still have four months left in the year. The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce has a lot going on:

DC Fly-In report: The Chamber recently released its 2013 DC Fly-In report. The report details the issues discussed during a recent trip to Washington D.C. During the visit, a group of Chamber representatives and local business leaders met with members of Indiana’s Congressional delegation and other key stakeholders in Terre Haute’s economic future, including the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Annual planning conference: The THCC Planning Conference will be from 8 a.m. to noon on Friday. The conference is a chance for the membership to help guide the Chamber’s mission, goals and strategic initiatives. First conducted in 2012, this year’s event will include a review of 2012-2013 accomplishments and further definition of the seven strategic initiatives.

Energize your business: Energizing Indiana has been contracted by Duke Energy to help Hoosier businesses save energy. Inefficient equipment can be costly to businesses. If you’re interested in lowering electric consumption and decreasing overall energy costs, Energizing Indiana is ready to help. The Commercial & Industrial Prescriptive Rebate Program provides businesses with up to $20,000 or more in rebates based on the installation of energy efficient equipment and system improvements. Upgrades can include Lighting, HVAC, Variable Frequency Drives and efficient ENERGY STAR commercial products.

Energizing Indiana recognizes the pivotal role chambers of commerce play in advancing Hoosier communities. It believes when your business takes action to become more energy efficient, chambers should benefit, too. In addition to the rebate your business receives, your chamber will receive an incentive equal to 5 percent of the total approved rebate amount of your application.
