What is Perigon?

You may have noticed that our Monday Morning Minute (MMM) has a different look. 

The Chamber is excited to be working with Eau Claire-based information and technology company, WIN, to bring you Perigon.  Perigon is a live streaming platform that will allow the Chamber to better communicate its messages to you, our members.  Not only will we be able to deliver pre-recorded content such as the Monday Morning Minute, but also real-time events such as seminars and conferences.  Member feedback let us know that many of you weren't able to access Facebook to view the MMM.  We listened and with the help of Perigon, our members can now stay better connected.   

Watch for your email from Chamber President, Dave Minor, every Monday morning and simply click on the perigonlive.com link.  You'll be able to interact with other Chamber members, ask questions and share feedback.  There are sponsorship opportunities available as well.  For more information on Perigon, contact Dave Minor
