Gary Chamber of Commerce Monthly Luncheon

February 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm CST


The Gary Chamber of Commerce will host a writer and educator at its next monthly meeting in February.

The chamber will host IUPUI Communication and Community Engagement Strategist Vernon Williams as its guest speaker at its monthly general membership meeting and luncheon at 12 p.m. Feb. 12 at The Chateau Banquets at 530 W. 61st Ave. in Merrillville.

Williams has had a long career in journalism, marketing and education. He was a Gary Post-Tribune reporter and now writes a weekly column for The Chicago/Gary Crusader. He is the former vice president of communications for Indiana Black Expo and served as the first Black assistant to the chancellor for communications at IUPUI.

He will talk with Gary Chamber of Commerce Director Chuck Williams about Gary and its history.

“Your business/organization needs to know the history, history makers and rich traditions of the City of Gary,” the Gary Chamber of Commerce said in a news release. “Hear how business was in Gary, and what it can become. Mr. Williams can use his experiences to help tell the Gary story. Join Vernon and Chuck in a fireside chat format in celebrating Gary’s culture, heritage and community.”
