February 1st, 2017 by Amanda Hofland

Every year around mid-January, something special happens. Our printer works overtime, boxes and piles of papers start appearing, our new Directories and Public Policy Guides arrive, and it can only mean one thing: Operation Thank You is near.

The holidays are here, and it gives me pause to reflect on yet another incredible year at The Chamber. A year that could not have been accomplished without so many important people.

November 1st, 2016 by Amanda Hofland

There has been a great deal of discussion regarding the recent decision by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to deny a permit for a dam on the Red River; a dam that is a major component of the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Project.

Dean Bresciani has been North Dakota State University’s president since 2010, and during these years, he has transformed the university into a nationally recognized institution for education, athletics and research.

June Primary Behind Us. But What Lies Ahead?

July 1st, 2016 by Amanda Hofland

My guess is that many Chamber members, like me, were tuned in to the news on the evening of June 14. The results of our June primary elections were critical for our metro and the state of North Dakota. As the results rolled in that night, there were some surprises. Most notably, the race for […]

Now’s Not the Time to Pause the F-M Diversion

May 1st, 2016 by Amanda Hofland
