It seems like less than four weeks that i have been serving as your Interim Executive Director/CEO but time goes fast when one is working with great people. My observation in this short period of time is that the strength of the Chamber is strong and we are a moving force in the area. Many times, I have heard that it is difficult to plan in good times and easy to do so in hard times so in brief, we must work hard to develop the Chamber for our future base on you, the members, and your needs rather than my perceived ideas based on history.
When doing this we must keep in mind what a Chamber can do and keep our primary focus of creating an “environment” for economic development to take place. That will involve a variety of groups, the schools, churches, service organizations, workforce development, member’s businesses and many others who impact our quality of life in the Defiance area. You, the member, play a very important role in this process and I am counting on you to help lead us forward to greater accomplishments. My phone number is (419) 782-7946 and my email is
, use these and help us plan!
Please see below a list of all of our upcoming events and see what our members have going on!
All the Best,
Interim Executive Director/CEO
