The chamber looks at future changes to the chamber's financial approach, special events like River Falls Days and producing more valuable resources and advertisements.
RIVER FALLS -- The River Falls Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau has dug deep into the "whys" behind the chamber’s motivations, events and role as a resource within the community to establish a new strategic plan just a few months after welcoming a new executive director.
Russ Korpela, who joined as the executive director in September 2019, revealed the 2020-2022 strategic chamber plan Jan. 16 in front of 65 attendees including state Rep. Shannon Zimmerman. Korpela said he wants to “inject energy” and build upon a strong foundation with the strategic plan to avoid complacency.
