Why did you join the Chamber?
Over the years, the family has had a few different businesses, as early as 1961 with Stanfill Fertilizer, Cowtown Western Store and now Stanfill Enterprises. Each one always joined the local chamber in order to belong to a business community and have a source of local networking that would enable us make new contacts and promote greater success in our business.
Why do you serve on the Board of Directors?
I agreed to serve on the Board of Directors for multiple reasons. As a private business owner I feel that it is my responsibility to offer my time and service with the local Chamber because of its importance in the growth and success of Lexington, therefore my business. I also wanted to see the structure of what happens behind the scenes in a Chamber of Commerce. How the puzzle fits together.
What is the Chamber's role in the community?
The Henderson County Chamber's role is not given enough attention. If the local business's would utilize all of the programs offered by the Chamber I'm sure that we would find ourselves in a much more unified industry. The Chamber offers many different resources for business improvement, including: visits with the TSBDC, opportunities to expand to a variety of customers, as well as monthly luncheons with professional speakers that cover topics of every aspect. The Chamber's goal is to promote a favorable business climate for its membership and community. I must confess that I as a business owner have sat back and expected the Chamber to come to me and make me feel secure, all it took was for me to step out of my comfort zone and attend a business after hours to see that it takes an effort on both parties for anything to be successful.
