  Chamber news
  By Jeremy Kniffen
  Liberty Tax Services

   Despite less than ideal weather, the Eastern Plains Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting April 5 at Grace Community Church. The meeting kicked off with brief introductions from all those in attendance; and, as the breakfast sponsor, Suzanne Craig spoke about LegalShield.
   LegalShield offers legal advice and support from experienced attorneys, along with a variety of other benefits. Suzanne will provide a seminar on wills May 6 in Colorado Springs. The cost is $12, which covers breakfast and all materials. For more information, contact Suzanne 719-440-0816.
   
   The featured speaker for April was Bonnie Moss, chief operation officer of Cybersecurity Institute for Small and Micro Business. She has a master’s degree in journalism and more than 20 years experience in crisis communication. CiSMB is a nonprofit organization, geared toward the small business market and cybercrime.
   
   Bonnie provided simple steps to improve cybersecurity and make it more difficult for criminals to access information. She provided tips to improve cybersecurity, along with ideas for training staff that have access to information. Bonnie encouraged everyone to have a plan to respond to a cybersecurity incident, adding that it was more likely a matter of when, not if. Having a plan will help mitigate some of the negative results of an attack.
   
   Bonnie works closely with the Pikes Peak Small Business Development Center, which offers workshops to assist small business with a variety of topics, including cybersecurity. More information about the SBCD and its workshops can be found at http://pikespeaksbdc.com.
   
   Upcoming speakers:
   June 7: After hours networking event, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., hosted by The State Bank at 7495 McLaughlin Road in Falcon. This event will take the place of the morning meeting. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
   
   The Eastern Plains Chamber of Commerce meets the first Wednesday of each month, from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at Grace Community Church, 9475 Grace Church View in Falcon.

  Perfect Fit celebrates 10 years

   On March 5, David Corder, owner of Perfect Fit Wellness Center in Falcon, celebrated 10 years of providing eastern plains residents a place to exercise and learn how to live a healthy lifestyle, with a variety of programs.
   
   Corder has expanded the center over the years and remodeled a bit, but some aspects remain the same as the day he opened. Prices have not changed, and Roger and Sue Carter, Corder’s first two members, are still active at the center on a daily basis.
   
   More than 900 members have passed through the center, which has about 150 to 200 active members.
   Perfect Fit now sponsors an annual International Yoga Retreat. Yoga enthusiasts have traveled to Costa Rica (twice), Cambodia; and, this May, they will be practicing yoga in Spain. Next year, they will be back in Costa Rica, also helping to save sea turtles.
   
   The center is a “judgment-free zone, where everyone supports each other,” Corder said. “I am so proud of the achievements I have seen the members make ... . Perfect Fit is not just a gym. “It has always been an educational center where you can come and learn more about yourself and what you might improve in your life.”
