I Think You’re Going to Like This One

OK, I admit I’m a little biased when it comes to the Chamber’s BizVoice magazine. After all, I have been here since day one of the publication back in 1998; it consumes a large part of my days (and evenings and weekends sometimes) and it’s a passion.

But we’ve got a good one coming up. It’s nervous time right now — the final few days before going to the printer. The editing, proofing, fact checking and more always cause a bit of anxiety, but that’s part of the business. As with two of our other issues (Best Places to Work and Annual Awards Dinner), we get to show off the work at a special event in addition to the normal statewide (and beyond) reading audience.

The September-October issue will first be seen August 25 at the fourth Indiana Companies to Watch awards program. We have profiles of all 43 companies being recognized, an interesting roundtable with four of the winners and additional information on the economic impact of these and previous CTW companies.

In addition, there’s a feature section on business deals. We relied on the expertise of about 20 "dealmakers" throughout the state to allow us to put together a package we think you will enjoy. Also, our five-part Workforce Wise series concludes with a look at two workers simply seeking that next career opportunity.

We have a talented communications team at the Chamber. I’m thankful for their efforts and dedication.
