I know, I know. Thanksgiving was just last week and it’s not even December yet, but here at the Chamber we’ve been gearing up for 2018 for a few weeks now. Hopefully you’ve saved the date for our Annual Banquet (1/19) and Annual Meeting (1/23) – two very important events within the Chamber calendar year.
December is such a busy month for most – Company Christmas parties and/or get-togethers with friends, holiday shopping (locally!) for both food and presents, traveling to or hosting family. For us at the Chamber, December will be busy, but busy working on things to come in the new year:
- Awards Banquet: my favorite part of the Chamber world where we honor people in the community for all that they have done, plus enjoy have an evening of entertainment and socializing.
- Annual Meeting: see what our focus in 2018 will be, some new things, and some classics.
- Membership Investment: keep an eye out for your 2018 investment in the Chamber. We depend upon your support to continue to do all that we can for the business community! We’re so grateful for you!
- Sponsor guides: Bekka, Laura, Rachel and I have been busy trying to get these out to all our past sponsors. Again, we are so grateful for your support! Please contact the Chamber if you haven’t gotten one. We have so many great opportunities all year round!
The Chamber’s tagline “where connections happen” is so fitting. We have so many ways for you to be involved. And if you haven’t found one that fits for you or your business – I’d love to hear from you! Part of my focus is always improving what we offer to our members which includes changing things up and offering new things. I plan to continue to do that in the new year. Keep your eye out for those new things. Additionally, we aim to make our signature events even better! Plan to Connect, Engage, Grow, and Lead with the Chamber in a new way in the new year.
It has been said, “whether we want them or not, the new year will bring new challenges; whether we seize them or not, the new year will bring new opportunities”
May we embrace all the challenges and opportunities that the new year brings. The Chamber is getting ready, are you?
