The most recent report on the unemployment rate in Robertson County released in late September recorded our current rate at 3.5%. That is a 1.1% drop from one year ago and represents about 1,260 Robertson Countians who are actively seeking employment. Our labor force is estimated at 36,490, of which 35,230 are currently employed.  At these levels, it is often said that basically "everyone who wants a job has one​."  And while we know that is not necessarily true, it does indicate the tight labor market that faces our Robertson County business and industry as they seek to keep their operations running efficiently and prepare for future growth and expansion.

Karen Shoemaker, The Credit Union for Robertson County

This year's 2017 Volunteer of the Year is Karen Shoemaker, a representative of The Credit Union for Robertson County. Karen has served for the past five years as the chair of the Robertson Education Initiative (REdI) Advisory Board.  In that capacity she has helped guide the work of REdI as we strived to build a partnership relationship between our business community and our public schools. Events and programs like Pep Rally on the Square, #ACTCounts, and Youth Leadership Robertson County would not have been successful without her support and hands on involvement. Karen has also served for three years as a co-chair of the TASTE of Robertson County competition at our annual Taste of Country festival. The TASTE competition has grown into a centerpiece for the festival during this time, attracting cooks and spectators alike to downtown Springfield for a fun competition that showcases local Robertson County food products and vendors.  Karen has become an extension of the Chamber staff, always willing to step up and chip in when needed.  For this we are honored to recognize and thank her in this small way for her dedication and love of our community and our work.
