New Resident Meet-Up, August 4th from 5-7 pm
July 8, 2021
The Truckee Chamber of Commerce will be holding a New Resident Meet-up August 4, 2021 from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Donner Lake Property Owners private beach on the west end of the lake.
The Chamber started reaching out to new residents in March and held a series of three focus groups to meet and learn more about our new residents. This was followed up with a Thirsty Thursday meet-up in April with the current Mayor Anna Klovstad and first Mayor Kathleen Eagan as our special guests.
“It’s been so difficult for our new residents to connect to our community during these COVID times,” explains Lynn Saunders, President and CEO of the Truckee Chamber. “We’re excited to be holding this in-person meet-up to bring new residents and community members together. We’ve had a lot of fun getting to know some of our new residents via Zoom and are anxious to meet them in person. We’ll probably throw in a quick Truckee Trivia component as it was so popular in our last meet-up and a fun way to learn about your new hometown.”
The Chamber is looking to develop a Community Concierge Program to help new residents make Truckee their Base Camp for a Big Life and learn more about Truckee’s unique mountain culture and how they can connect, engage, get involved, and support our local businesses. The program will bring together new residents and “local connectors” — community members who can provide peer guidance, who are well-versed in the vibe of the community.
“We want to help people become part of our community, get to know people, and get involved,” explains Lynn Saunders, President and CEO of the Truckee Chamber. “We know new residents are hungry for information about the community and we’re here to help them connect and engage. It could be learning more about different businesses and their local owners, activities and nonprofits, Truckee’s roots, how to prepare for wildfire season or how unique and rewarding it is that you really can make a difference in your new community by just getting involved. Ultimately we will focus not only on new residents, but long-time residents as well. There’s always something new to learn and experience.”
