Mark LusterThe 90th annual Installation and Awards Dinner for the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce focused on natural resources.

Not only is the chamber the natural resource for businesses in El Dorado County, the many natural resources in El Dorado County support local business and make a positive impact on everyone’s daily lives, El Dorado County businesses can be the natural resource for consumers.

Incoming president Mark Luster of Sierra Pacific Industries stressed the importance of a symbiotic relationship between nature’s bounty, business and the residents and invited everyone at the dinner to take an active part in El Dorado County’s future.
