From the President
The countdown to 2016 is on. It feels like the year went by in the blink of an eye. As I reflect on the successes and challenges of 2015, I am humbled and energized to continue the momentum in 2016.

A highlight of the year was receiving our Four Star Accreditation rating from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This accolade is a direct result of your support. The Chamber's success is not possible without your belief in our mission. Whether you attended events, sponsored a program, participated in a committee, or served as a board member, your participation made an positive impact in our community. I encourage you to continue to find ways to deepen your engagement.

This month the staff suffered a huge loss with the departure of Alma Hall, our membership services specialist. She brought a creative, energetic, and positive energy to her work and did an outstanding job. I thank her for her work and wish her all the best in her future endeavors. If you would like to contact Alma, please email me and I will provide the appropriate information.
