Rowlett Chamber Members,  

Here are a few items I'd like to share with you this week including a video of the presentation I did at the June Chamber Luncheon about the future of the Rowlett Chamber.

Now through July 21
The search has started for a new Garland ISD superintendent, and the district’s Board of Trustees is working with Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates to conduct this process. Trustees invite all GISD staff and families, as well as business, clergy and community members to participate during the search. A survey open to the public will provide feedback regarding the desired qualities in a new superintendent.  Simply click the link above.  Community forums will also allow attendees to provide critical input on future leadership. These will be scheduled for July 18-20. Specific times and locations will be posted to GISD’s superintendent search web page. “We value the opinions of our constituents throughout the tri-cities of Garland, Rowlett and Sachse,” said Board President Larry Glick. “We hope they will partner with us throughout this search process.”

At the June Chamber Member Luncheon I had the privilege of sharing a presentation on the coming changes for the Rowlett Chamber. We have an exciting future ahead of us with all of the changes coming to Rowlett! The link will take you to a video of that presentation with slides included. Thanks to Drew Rist, City of Rowlett, for recording and creating the YouTube video.
