Congrats to our 2024 Installation Dinner Award Winners!
January 22, 2024
Last Thursday we gathered for a night of community celebrations and entertainment at our 2024 Installation Dinner. During the cocktail hour, guests enjoyed craft cocktails at our Speakeasy, sponsored by Randy Peters Catering, while being dazzled by the musical talent of Lisa Marie Ellis.
We also hosted a silent auction to benefit the Placer Workforce Development Foundation, the newly launched 501(c)3 arm of the Chamber. The Foundation mission is, through strategic collaborations and innovative programs, to create a robust workforce and thriving economic ecosystem where individuals have access to meaningful opportunities and employers have access to a diverse and skilled talent pipeline.
A huge thank you to Lush Balloons for transforming the space into an incredible display of balloon artistry! Your added touch helped set the tone of the event!
After enjoying dinner and delicious Nothing Bunt Cakes, sponsored by CAPTRUST, we began the award ceremony. Congratulations to this year's honorees who are true pillars in our community:

During the evening, we also celebrated the many accolades our City has received, ranking us among the top cities for Safest City in CA, Best Places to live, raise a family, and retire, all of which could not be possible without the strong Leadership of our local elected officials and our City staff. Their unwavering commitment to providing exceptional service to the entire community, both residents & businesses. Unlike many communities across our State, the City of Roseville always ensures a seat at the table for our business community. That is exactly why we have also been ranked among the top cities for job growth in the United States by the Milken Institute, highlighting our strong economy and our employment opportunities.
Very much in alignment with our City efforts, our Chamber’s vision is to advance the Roseville Area to be the best region in California to live, work, and do business. The role of our Chamber is to serve as the catalyst and the convener, bringing people together to foster collaboration, connection, innovation, and growth for Roseville and the entire region.
To thank our board of directors for their leadership and ongoing support, we concluded the evening with Mayor Bruce Houdesheldt installing our 2024 President, Vance Jones, and our Board of Directors. With their leadership, 2024 is sure to be one to remember!
Thank you again to all of our sponsors and everyone who helped make this event possible!
