The Siouxland Chamber of Commerce announces the speaker for the organization’s annual dinner and it’s someone who has climbed to great heights.
Chamber leaders say this year, they wanted to go with a motivational speaker.
Erik Weihenmayer will speak at the September 20th Dinner.
Weihenmayer is the first blind climber to summit Mount Everest.
The chamber says it wasn’t a tough choice.
“The World can be dark for a lot of people, right now. So, metaphorically coming in and maybe a boost of inspiration. So, I guess a lot of things appealed to me,” says Linda Kalin, Chair of Board of Directors with the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce.
Reservations for the annual dinner are 90-dollars for Siouxland Chamber of Commerce members and 110-dollars for non-chamber members.
