"I am very excited to have Susie on board as our 2017 President, she has already stepped yup and started to make some great strides within the Chamber. I know that Susie and I, along with our Executive Board and Directors, are going to do many great things within the Chamber this year.
My main goal this year is to bring our Chamber of Commerce website up to date. We have struggled with this the past year and have learned from our mistakes. By January 1, 2017 our new website will be up and running. I hope you will check it out and see what all we have to offer you as far as marketing and advertising on our website.
I also plan on being more face to face with our members during 2017, so be ready to see me pop in on you at your business and ask you 1) how business is going 2) what can I do to hep promote your business and 3) is there anything you need from the Chamber? I look forward to obtaining a great deal of feedback this way. However, don't wait for me to come in if you have an idea or would like me to do something for your business...feel free to give me a call or send me an email and I will get right to it. Remember, I am here to help you in any way I can.
Another objective I have for 2017 is to make the Spurfest great again. We have struggled the past few years being able to get participation and sponsorship for the Spurfest. But this year I am going to work longer and harder than ever to find the resources needed to make the Spurfest an event worth attending and coming back to year after year. So mark your calendars for the 3rd Saturday in September and plan on attending this year's Spurfest.
2017 is going to be a great year for Chamber Members, with our "Choose your Dues" tier sponsorship options, we are offering our members a great deal of opportunities to market their business. I hope each of you will take advantage of these tier sponsorship options and let us show you that we can reach thousands of people with your name and logo on a weekly or daily basis. We are here for you, so please take a look at our tier sponsorship opportunities and decide which is best for your business.
Thank you so much for being a supporter of the Gatesville Chamber of Commerce and our community. My motto for 2017 is going to be "Support those who support their community." Being a Chamber member is a great way to support your community and to get involved with community events, because in the end We are all in this together.
Thank you for supporting the Chamber!"
