Chamber News
Annual Meeting Postponed  
All Partnership members were notified that the Partnership's Annual Meeting, which was scheduled for Thursday, February 25, at the General Morgan Inn, was postponed. Taking into account that a negative weather forecast for that date was on the radar, the executive committee agreed to delay the event and reschedule it to coincide with the arrival of the new president of the Partnership. The search committee continues its recruitment efforts with the idea in mind to combine the events to not only celebrate the past year, but to introduce and welcome the incoming president. More information on the date and time will be forthcoming as efforts proceed.
Membership Directory & Annual Report/Business Plan
Since plans called for the 2016 Partnership Membership Directory and the 2015 Annual Report/2016 Business Plan to be distributed at the Annual Meeting, it has been decided that the two publications will be mailed out to all members in advance of the meeting. Extra copies of each will also be available at the Annual Meeting. Watch for the arrival of these two major Partnership publications within the next couple of weeks.

This breakfast provides all individuals the opportunity to talk directly with their elected officials. The cost is $20 per person paid in advance or $25 at the door.

Mark Your Calendars Now . . . 
The Partnership's Annual Golf Shoot-Out has been moved to the second Thursday in August because of a conflict with the Link Hills Country Club schedule.
