Fall Members Meeting featuring Chris Koch

Join us for a special meeting featuring local farm-boy, world-traveller and motivational speaker Chris Koch.

Following a brief members' meeting, where Nanton CHamber members will be asked to vote on a motion to change one of our bylaws (details below), Chris will be speaking on November 20 at the Bomber Command Museum in Nanton and we are thrilled to hear his inspiring stories.

Due to limited seating we encourage you to get your ticket soon. Tickets can be picked up in Nanton at Because I Said So, or online through Event Brite at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/an-evening-with-chris-koch-presented-by-the-nanton-chamber-of-commerce-tickets-39410337380 .
Admission is Free, but you must register to attend, and we encourage guests to bring a cash donation to the event, in support Chris's charities of choice: Nanton Minor Hockey and the Nanton Food Bank.

If you don't already know Chris, here is a brief bio in his own words:
"I was born in Lethbridge, Alberta and raised in the small farming and ranching community of Nanton, Alberta. It was clearly established early on in my life that I would not be raised with pity or sympathy. My family could have treated my disability like a total tragedy but instead chose to take it all in stride and make the best of the situation. After all, I still had a good head on my shoulders… and with that, anything is possible.

“Every day might not be great, but there is something great in every day.”
-Chris Koch

I absolutely love sharing my story and spreading my message of, “If I Can…”

My life has been a fun ride with a lot of laughs and I make sure that my presentation reflects that. I have not let limitations or obstacles in my life stand in the way of achieving my goals and dreams and I encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, I am constantly setting new goals for myself and I think it's important for everyone to always be challenging themselves as well.

Simply put, if I can do the things I have done so far in my life, what is stopping anyone else from doing the same?"

SPECIAL MEMBERS MEETING: Immediately prior to Chris's presentation, we will be opening a special members' meeting to vote on a motion to change the date of the AGM to no later than February 28 each year. This will allow us to provide a year end report, while the previous year is still fresh in everyone's minds.
