Over 10 years ago, your chamber began doing its annual planning in a different way. We decided to ask each of our members for their opinion of our direction and operations as a business association.
From your responses, the board defined our focus areas in 2010 to guide the efforts for that year. With survey results over each of the following years, we refined our 2010 work into the current year’s strategic objectives.
All of the chamber committees will, once again, be meeting, either virtually or actually, late spring and summer to promote results in their subject area and refine their focus for the upcoming year. So, with our completed 2021 survey, which each chamber member will find in their email inbox this September, the 2022 goals from each of our committees and the results from this year’s committee work in hand, the board of directors will hold its annual planning session in mid November. So why are goals and goal setting important? Let me share a story with you.
When I was a kid, my dad brought home a catalog from the Ford dealer. We went through a process, as a family, to pick the color of our new station wagon. After several votes, it ended up two-tone brown. We ordered the car, waited six weeks and were very happy when we got it. The thing I began to notice, however, was it appeared that there were many new two-tone brown Ford station wagons in our area. It seems when our mind focuses on something, we begin to notice it everywhere. When our mind focuses on a goal, we begin to see ways to get it done.
So, check into that chamber committee that works issues dear to your heart, offer them your ideas and help make their goals happen.
