Utah’s business and community leaders will gather for the 136th Annual Meeting of the Salt Lake Chamber at noon on August 29, 2023, at the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek (75 South West Temple). Participants will celebrate community leaders and Chamber volunteers who have demonstrated exceptional service in the previous year by dedicating their time and skills to further the Chamber's mission and strengthen the business community.
