With excitement and gratitude I have accepted the position of President for the Ingersoll District Chamber of Commerce. I look forward to working with our members in the business community and encourage the growth of our Chamber.
Past Presidents and Board members have built a great foundation for our organization and we have the opportunity to build on that past success. We started 2018 off with two Focus Group sessions, one in January and one in February. Many great ideas were shared and have been taken to the Board of Directors to determine how we can implement some of those items. Businesses today face many challenges and my vision and goal is to support our members the best way we can.
The next few months will be spent focusing on our Strategic Plan and developing an Advocacy Plan that will provide value for our membership. Even though we have plans to make some changes, many of our annual events will continue. I hope to see you out at the Ingersoll Day at the Rogers Centre and Golf Tournament in June, as well as the Food & Wine in August. Over the course of the next few months please consider the local businesses you support with nominations for our Business Awards of Excellence in the October.
I am looking forward to leading our Chamber as we are “Promoting Success Together”
