The Rockford Area Chamber of Commerce annual dinner gathers local business and government leaders to discuss small business growth, and honor someone for dedication to the community.
An expert on small business and entrepreneurship, Jim Blasingame, shared his secrets to success. In 2008, Blasingame was recognized by the Association of Small Business Development Centers. He's also the creator and host of an award winning nationally syndicated weekly radio talk show.
During the dinner, the Rockford Chamber announced its Citizen of the Year, Dan Loescher. He's a principal in Loescher & Associates, Ltd. and chairman of Riverside Community Bank's board. Loescher will soon be the SwedishAmerican Health System board chairman.
