A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT….
Dear Chamber Members,
Dear Chamber Members,
I would like to start off by thanking Bill Young, CEO of Southwest General, for another wonderful presentation during February’s chamber luncheon. His ability to break down complex healthcare issues into understandable examples makes each of his talks clear and relatable. We also appreciate the amount of time and support he gives to the Middleburg Heights Chamber of Commerce.
As I have stated previously, Middleburg Heights is focused on moving forward and the Chamber is committed to doing the same. In the months to come, we will be rolling out additional benefits, committees, and events to help promote, support, and develop your businesses. We will collaborate with other area Chambers to ensure that your business will have the opportunity to reach as many people as possible. Business leaders in the area will be able to meet with you on a consultative basis to address your business needs and attempt to provide direction with whatever issues you may be facing. Our board is committed to helping businesses within Middleburg Heights thrive because we understand that you are the backbone of this community.
One of the benefits that will be provided, courtesy of Machor Sage Insurance Agency, is the Our Community App. This app will allow you to promote your business, participate in local scavenger hunts that will introduce you to potential clients, and allow you to offer promotions. To recap, the app is free to Chamber Members and will provide yet another way to connect local area businesses, City officials and residents. Registration is quick and easy and can be done by following the link provided: https://www.machor.com/about/our-community-app/our-community-partner I would encourage all members to register your business as soon as possible, so you can take full advantage of the benefits provided once the app goes live.
Our next Chamber Chatter will be Thursday, February 27th at Sips and Such. Join us for a complimentary cup of coffee and see what is happening within your community.
The next Chamber Luncheon will be held at Polaris Career Center on March 12th. In addition to eating some of the award-winning food the students have prepared and seeing the remarkable transformation Polaris has recently undergone, you will also have the opportunity to network and take part in a presentation about the future of skilled trades in Ohio. The presentation will be conducted by Bob Timmons, Superintendent of Polaris Career Center and, via videoconference, Congressman Anthony Gonzalez. Make sure to register soon as this will be a popular event that will fill up quickly.
As always, if you are looking to do a brief presentation about your business during one of the upcoming luncheon meetings, please reach out to myself or Cindy.
