Behind The Scenes
Your Chamber Board of Directors met for a long-overdue, day-long retreat on Wednesday, June 19 to review our mission, opportunities, and goals for the coming years. We used strategic planning tools to assess every board member’s vision for and opinion about our Chamber, and analyzed how we are currently fulfilling our mission to “actively foster business growth, member services and a united community.”
It was agreed that we need to focus more on helping new and existing businesses grow and thrive in the Chesaning area. Ideas presented included encouraging entrepreneurship and downtown development, as well as sharing resources for employee training and retention. In the coming months, look for more business-focused educational opportunities to help our members and community achieve success.
We conducted a thorough review of our member benefits to ensure that you are receiving the best support from your Chamber for your membership dollars. We are excited to offer new enhancements to all membership levels and will deliver new packets with updated membership materials this fall. Please make certain that you are utilizing all of the advantages offered with your Chamber membership!
We also reviewed our event calendar and have turned our focus to mission-based events including more networking opportunities, training and education.
The Board of Directors left the retreat feeling energized and excited about the direction of the Chamber. We look forward to sharing that enthusiasm with you!
President—Chamber Board of Directors
