With fallen leaves clogging your gutters and frost on the windshield, we begin thinking about the New Year. At the Chamber, we begin our preparation for 2019’s opportunities and successes with the annual board planning session.

For the past several years we have used your input about what you see are the most important issues facing our community, how you think the Chamber has been dealing with them, and what you would like to have us address in the next year.

With that information and our Committee 2019 goals, the Chamber sets its Strategic Objectives for the next year.

Part of the success of that effort depends on leadership. The Executive Committee for 2019 was just elected so let me share that information with you.
