A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT….
Dear Chamber Members,
I hope you and your loved ones enjoyed a wonderful holiday and I wish you a healthy and abundant New Year. I would like to take a moment to thank all the Chamber and Board members both past and present for all that they have done in years past and going forward. Thank you to Dan Zawadzki for his leadership over the previous two years and his guidance in the year to come. Lastly, I would like to thank Cindy Peck and Kristin Ellis for all the work they put into making our Chamber a success.
In this New Year, I would like to encourage all of our members to get involved. Join a committee, volunteer for an event, and attend an after-hours. There is so much more that your Chamber offers than just monthly luncheons. So, go out and meet your neighbors. Shop at your local small business and get to know your area service providers. Build a personal connection with the people you do business with and maintain that relationship.
In 2019, I would like to focus on highlighting the people and businesses that make Middleburg Heights such a great community to both live and work in. Please join us for our first luncheon of 2019 at Rock Creek Kitchen with Aldo Filippelli Deputy Registrar from the Department of Motor Vehicles. He will be discussing new compliant driver’s licenses in Ohio. We also have an indoor golf networking event hosted by Dave Herwerden at North Ridgeville Racquet Club on January 18th. Lastly, we still have a number of tickets available for the Cavs night out on January 25th.
I look forward to meeting and working with all of you in 2019 and am eager to see where the New Year takes us.
I began working in Middleburg Heights back in 2009, and since, have met some truly great and inspiring people. As a bank manager, I can attest that the Chamber has provided me with unique opportunities to get to know members of our community and has helped to strengthen those relationships, benefiting me both personally and professionally. There are many tangible benefits for joining the Chamber, but I would say the greatest argument for joining and the reason for its success, lies within the people reading this newsletter. Our members make our Chamber what it is. While there are numerous benefits to joining, none is greater than meeting someone who you can mutually benefit from working with.
