Message from the Chairman of the Board
Fellow Chamber Friends,
Spring has Sprung! While our friends in the north dig out of
the snow and fly in this direction for Spring Break, it's business as usual for
us in Santa Rosa County. We get to live in paradise and enjoy some of the best
beaches in the world. Sometimes, it's hard to concentrate on work this time of
year. Let's not let that distract us though, because there is a TON of Chamber
work to be done.
The first order of business, of course, is to get an update
on our beautiful building on Avalon Boulevard. Thank you again to all our
donors and members who are making this dream a reality. We are so excited about
the opportunity to serve Santa Rosa residents and members with new meeting
space, and a state-of-the-art Visitor's Center in a much more convenient
location. Yes, we are still looking for additional funding sources and hope
that each of you will participate in sponsoring Project Welcome in some way. Please
use this as an opportunity to showcase your business by making a contribution
if you have not already done so.
Please keep our Military Appreciation event in mind on May
17. It is always a wonderful opportunity to say THANK YOU to our military for
their hearts of service. We encourage you to support this event in any way you
can to show our appreciation for those who serve and their families. Emails are
going out on a variety of ways to support.
Of course, so many other things are going in progress. YOUR
Camber is always working on so many things on your behalf. From legislative
initiatives, to Chamber networking events supporting new and existing members
and educating new leaders through our Leadership program... It's never boring at
the Santa Rosa County Chamber!
Let's have fun in Santa Rosa County!
2019 Chairman of the Board
