In case you missed one or more of the Salt Lake Chamber’s Utah Business Reports on KSL News Radio, here is a recap of what we talked about this week.

On Wednesday, there were viewing parties for the Tour de France at Megaplex theatres across the Wasatch Front. Come next month, seven of those same teams will be in Utah for the Tour of Utah race, which takes place August 7 to 12.

Also note that 2,000 volunteer positions need to be filled for the Tour of Utah race. All volunteers will receive an incredible gift bag from the Tour, including a t-shirt, cap, a lunch tote and much more. Get involved and donate your time for one day or for the full week of the race.

Today, Friday July 20, marks the last day for Early Bird registration for the Business Women’s Forum’s annual Summer Social. Save $10 off admission by registering today! Today is also the last day to rent a booth. Booth registration costs $150.

The Summer Social will take place at Red Butte Gardens on August 9. It is a special fundraising event that aims to bring over 200 of Salt Lake City’s most prominent women together and provide a platform for learning, networking and sharing information. Along with a silent auction, there will be hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and entertainment to accompany this great networking event.

As part of the Chamber’s 125th anniversary, we want to share the rich history of the members that have made the Chamber so successful.

Founded during the Great Depression as a Works Progress Administration orchestra, the Utah Symphony is now the premiere orchestra in the Intermountain West and one of the nation’s 17 year-round orchestras.

Utah Opera, established by Glade Peterson in 1978, has also been part of our community for nearly 35 years, engaging and impacting Utah residents through inspiring operatic performances.

In July 2002, the governing boards of Utah Symphony and Utah Opera made a precedent-setting decision to consolidate both organizations into Utah Symphony | Utah Opera. For decades, both companies have shaped the artistic landscape of Utah by presenting artists and performances of exceptional scope and quality.

Over the years, many of the civic leaders who’ve presided over the Chamber Board have also been leaders on the Utah Symphony | Utah Opera Board going back even before the Chamber was organized.

We also talked about the biggest visible change to the internet and how Utah’s metropolitan areas among those leading the nation in business and careers going into the future.
