2014 Golf Tournament
The major golf tournament sponsor, Steven Brownstein / The Background Investigator, has again generously donated a check for $5,000 to the Saipan Chamber of Commerce for this year’s event. Proceeds of the tournament will go toward the Chamber’s Education/Scholarship fund, monthly training seminars, and other Chamber programs which directly benefit the business community of Saipan.
The Chamber holds many educational events each year. The annual scholarship awards totalling $12,000 are the most public and visible educational endeavor but we also sponsor a program begun in 2008: workshops for high school juniors and seniors. This year’s event was entitled “Joining the Workforce” and gave students a better understanding of core abilities and issues (such as personal budgeting, balancing work and family expectations, communication skills, and resume-writing and interview tips.) These are useful life skills for anyone, whether they are heading off to college or immediately entering the workforce after graduation. Mr. Brownstein’s donation to the Saipan Chamber of Commerce will help fund all of these worthwhile projects.
