The Napa Chambers Annual Dinner and Awards event offers a point in time for the Napa Chamber to show appreciation to you, our membership; to update you on the Chambers accomplishments and strategic vision; and for you to help us honor those significant contributors who routinely go above and beyond to support building a strong local economy and ensure that Napa is a healthy, prosperous and inclusive community. Breathe, Balance, and Bold are terms typically used in evaluating wine vintages and reflect the industry of our incoming Chair, Debra Dommen of Treasury Wine Estates.

In 2011 our economy experienced a year similar to our 2011 harvest... the kind of year that tests nerves, skill and the capacity to deal with conditions out of your control and find ways to be creative and sustainable. We took a deep breath and worked more with our networks, managed more with less and reflected on fundamentals. Balance brought a process of harvesting the good out of challenges and reconnecting with whats important. The boundaries have been stretched and they wont go back to the old shape, so we must take what weve learned and boldly move forward, thriving as a community.

The Path Elements Profile, (which you will take prior to meeting) uses the highly visual and easily remembered elements of Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. You will identify the leadership strengths and challenges, work tendencies, and communication styles that go with each element.
