The New Year Welcomes 2015 Board Chair
I am honored to serve as the 2015 Chairperson of one of our community’s greatest assets, the Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce. As you know, we provide a platform for the activities that “create business prosperity.” From monthly general membership meetings to legislative advocacy and from business development resources to events such as our highly successful Skagit Wine and Beer Festival, we offer tools to help you and your business grow. Below are our core competencies. Please take a look. These are the guideposts that keep us directed down the road of helping achieve success for our local businesses.
In October, your Board of Directors held a planning “advance.” They reviewed our vision and mission and fine-tuned our “compass.” With renewed direction they will ensure that our Chamber continues to provide the best possible services to our members and the community as a whole. In order to do so I would like to invite you to provide us your input. The more we understand your business needs, the more able we are to assist you. Please contact me or any board member or staff person and share your perspective. Ask how we can help you with a problem or how you can take advantage of an opportunity. If we don’t have a program or resource in place we’ll find one. And, if you’ve identified a need that other businesses share, we’ll create a program tailor-made to address it.
Also, I want to thank those that have served us in the past. Directors, Chairpersons, Committee heads and of course, our tremendous staff, have all kept us moving forward. Their effort has put us in the position we are today—a community leader. Lastly, I want to send a huge “Thank You” to the Board of Directors, our staff and the members for giving me the opportunity to help out. Together we will look forward to continued success for our businesses and our community.
