Thank you to all who attended and supported the 109th Installation & Awards Dinner of your Escondido Chamber of Commerce last Friday evening at the California Center of the Arts. It was a stylish affair where we gathered to salute the individual achievements over the last year of the people who make our Community great. In attendance were elected officials and Chamber member's from all disciplines and their spouses, sons and daughters or significant others. This was an opportunity for me to meet many new locals and make new friends. This is no secret but, the Chamber has deep roots in this Community and over the years has contributed greatly to Escondido. Friday night we honored them as well as many new folks who are continuing the tradition of caring and giving back to Escondido.

We also recognized several new Board members and our Mayor Paul McNamara swore in the full Board as they serve a new year here at the Chamber. Additionally we thanked outgoing Board Chair Kristen Steinke and ushered in our new Board Chair Matt Pound. The Chamber's Board plays a vital role in setting policy, strategy, fiscal oversight and so much more to the Chamber, and all voluntarily giving of their time and experience. It's a huge commitment and a great resource to me.

Now it's time to continue the great work of the Chamber and build on the legacy of our past with a keen eye on the future. Please join me.
