A Message from Kevin Warhurst,
GMBA President, 2021
Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are looking forward to what we all hope will be a safe, healthy and prosperous 2021.
As the incoming president of the Greater Merrifield Business Association, I look forward to serving and working with the Board in leading this great organization in the year ahead. I realize that in stepping into this role, I have some really big shoes to fill, as Billy Thompson has done such a great job as our president over these last seven years. Thank you, Billy, for your service and leadership, and for putting your heart and soul into the GMBA. We all owe you a debt of gratitude.
As we continue to navigate our way through the pandemic, there is no doubt that our organization will face some challenges in the months ahead, just as we did throughout 2020. But there are also many opportunities to strengthen our existing relationships, and build new ones as we seek to grow our association moving forward. I look forward to facing those challenges together, and creating opportunities to better serve our members and our community.
As you know, the GMBA has played such an integral role over the years in helping shape Merrifield into the vibrant community that it is today. Whether you live here, work here, shop here, dine here, or play here, you know what a special place Merrifield is, and how important it is to the local economy. That is due in no small part to the GMBA, and by working together we can build on that record and continue to shape the future of Merrifield for many years to come.
I want to thank the Board of Directors for the trust they have placed in me, and the membership at large for the opportunity to serve this great organization.
Vice President, Merrifield Garden Center
