It is hard to believe that this is the 51st and final newsletter for 2018. We have accomplished so much in twelve months and are vigilantly putting things in place for 2019. 

What can you expect?

Escondido has a new Mayor and District 1 Councilwoman. Connecting the new leadership with the business community is a top priority for the Chamber. You will be able to meet with Mayor McNamara and Councilwoman Martinez at the State of the City Address and the Chamber Coffee Exchange. 

Connecting Veterans with resources and business development will be one of the Chamber's key objectives in 2019. Our Veteran's Incubator will provide a professional environment for entrepreneurs who want to start or grow their business. And through a partnership with the Veterans' Chamber of Commerce we will be able to offer a myriad of programs, resources and training. 

The focus on education is at an all-time high. The Rising Star Student of the Month Award and Scholarship program is continuing with the goal of exceeding last year's awarded scholarships. We are also connecting businesses with education through internships so that the up and coming workforce is integrated and well established. 

This is just a snippet of things to come, and getting involved is easy. The Education, Economic Development and Government Affairs Committees meet every month. I encourage you to check out each one and determine where you and your business can be the most influential. 

Of course, if I have peeked your interest in a particular area, let's have a conversation over a cup of coffee. I would enjoy hearing your ideas and how you would like to be involved. 

Looking forward to seeing you in 2019!

Sincerely,

Rorie Johnston
