On the morning of Tuesday, March 5, Steve Irvin, News Anchor for Channel ABC-15, will present what it’s like to work in a hectic, major TV newsroom. Steve is an Emmy-award-winning journalist and anchor of ABC-15 News. He joined ABC-15 News in 2002 as morning anchor/reporter.

Steve grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin, but his work in television news has taken him all over the world.

Despite those travels, Steve says the best stories are always right in his own backyard. “I’m constantly amazed at the strength and courage of everyday people,” he says. “It’s one of the great joys of this job – the privilege of telling stories.”

Steve’s work has earned him numerous accolades. He has earned four Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards and received the Best Anchor award in 2004 and 2006. In his spare time, Steve enjoys working out, reading and playing golf.

On the morning of Tuesday, March 12, Dr. Lynn A. Genet, a practicing physician and owner of American Physical Medicine, will speak at the club. She received both her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the National College of Chiropractic. She treats all areas of the spine with a focus on head, neck, shoulder, arm and hand pain, using techniques that are gentle and effective.

On the evening of Tuesday, March 26, Terri Kimble, CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, will be the speaker. After moving from Michigan to the Valley in 2009, she became the President/CEO of the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce and in 2011, took the helm of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce. The Chandler Chamber is the third largest Chamber in the State of Arizona, representing over 170,000 employees. Kimble also serves on the Arizona State University PolyTech Community Advisory Board, Chandler-Gilbert Community College Advisory Board, City of Chandler Economic Development Advisory Board and Intel Community Advisory Board, just to name a few. Terri has been recognized as Phoenix Business Journal’s Outstanding Woman in Business. She received a Woman of Chandler Award from Chandler Lifestyle Magazine and saw the Chandler Chamber inducted into the City of Chandler’s Celebration Plaza under her leadership.

Terri holds a degree in Communications from Oakland University and is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for Organizational Management. Terri lives in Chandler with her husband George, and together they have four children and nine grandchildren.
