President’s Report – July 2019
Summer is in full swing here in our community and as July strolls into our lives, it’s hard to imagine that over half the year has passed. I think about our amazing accomplishments that fuels us to persevere towards the work that we still have ahead of us. July holds a very special place in my heart as it is the month that marks my two-year anniversary as your Chamber president. It’s been an incredible 2 years, with a lot of learning, a lot of new ideas, and a lot of fun. I can’t say enough about the amazing team we have here at the Chamber and the amazing Chamber family we have… In my book, we’re second to none!
