Welcome to 2018! 

Can you believe how quickly 2017 came and went? It seems like just yesterday that I was taking on this new role as President/CEO and yet we have accomplished so much. I hope to see you at the 39th Annual Community Awards Banquet this Saturday where you'll get to hear about some of the exciting things that have happened and new things on the horizon! You might even get to hear a bit of Chamber history that you weren't aware of! Hint: do you really know just how old the Rowlett Chamber is?

At the banquet we will honor many from our community, including teachers, firefighters, police, public works, community service and small and large businesses. We'll also honor the very best of the best with the Biff Bettencourt Outstanding Service Award and the Big "R" Pacesetter. We're also having a speaker - Cathi Hight with Hight Performance Group - who will be unveiling the new membership structure and explaining how it will take us to the next level.

Purchase your tickets to the banquet by clicking the ticket below. Discounts are available if you purchase a table of 8 so bring your friends and family and discover what is happeing at your chamber. We need to give the hotel a final count on Wednesday so get your tickets soon!
Don't forget to watch for my emails in the future as I'll continue providing you information about training opportunities, interesting blogs, webinars and other things I think you'll find useful. If you have something specific you'd like me to find and share please let me know. I'm also going to add a section where I'll tell you about different benefits of Chamber membership you may not even be aware of. For example, did you know we have a Visitor's Information Center here in the Chamber? In the Information Center you'll find flyers, brochures and business cards from many of our members as well as maps of Rowlett and DART guides. We have new residents, visitors to Rowlett and sometimes a long-time resident drop in and we are always happy to help them find the information they need. Do we have your flyers or brochures? If not then bring them by - we have plenty of space!
I'm looking forward to an exciting 2018 and I'm so grateful that you are a part of the Rowlett Chamber of Commerce! We exist to serve you and to represent and promote your economic well-being.

Warm regards,

Michael
