The NKY Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization that promotes and supports its members at every opportunity. However, the Chamber recognizes that it is important for this event to have regional representation. Selection of a speaker is based on a variety of criteria including the above. Although it is not necessary that a speaker is a Chamber member, members may be given more weighted consideration in the final selection.
