Welcome to 2019,
I am excited to begin 2019 as the new President/CEO of the Defiance Area Chamber of Commerce. I have spent nearly 30 years working with businesses in Northwest Ohio and I plan to use those experiences and relationships moving forward in my new position. I look forward to getting to know all of you as I search for ways to strengthen member businesses and improve our community.
Below you will find our events scheduled for the month of January. Please join us to learn more about ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital or for some professional networking at our Business After Hours sponsored by Malhoit & Associates.
February brings us our second First Friday Luncheon of 2019. Our speaker will be Mayor Mike McCann and will be held at the Defiance Eagles Aerie #372. Next on our calendar for February will be Business After Hours, sponsored and hosted by The Hubbard Co. We will finish off the month with our first Free Business Seminar conducted by the Employers Association. This class will feature Time Management Tune Up tips and tricks to help you manage your time more effectively.
If you have any suggestions on how the chamber can benefit your business and our community, please reach out to me, as I would love to discuss your great ideas.
