Free workshop on employee performance for small business owners

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce and Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District will host a free workshop on “Critical conversations: Utilizing Feedback Opportunities to Enhance Employee Performance” from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Chamber’s Community Room, 201 S. Magnolia Ave. in El Cajon. Presenting will be Kathryn Rippy, director of organization development with The Centre for Organization Effectiveness. This workshop will discuss the importance of having critical conversations even when they are difficult, weighing the cost/benefit, navigating the difficult conversation to a win-win outcome and making this critical part of your organization or team. The workshop is designed to help East County small business owners improve their employee productivity and performance.
