A Message from the Chamber President

As you may already know, I will be leaving the Chamber at the end of 2021, after seven years in this role. It will be a bittersweet departure, but it’s time to move on and re-focus on my own businesses and projects, which have taken a backseat for a long time.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Chamber – the incredible people I have gotten to know, the relationships that were sparked or strengthened, and the work that we have done together. The challenges and successes I have shared with so many of you, especially in the past couple of years, have left me very humbled and inspired by our local business community. And I’m prouder than ever before to call Jefferson County my home and to own a business here.

I thank you all for the great memories I’ll take with me and I look forward to continuing our work in making the area better and stronger.

Remember that there’s still time to get tickets for next Wednesday’s 113th Annual Awards Dinner & Meeting at St. Florian Hall. Come out for great food and drink, exciting speakers and an evening celebrating our members and their importance to the local business community.

Sincerely,

Tricia Maple-Damewood
President

The Day That Changed America Forever

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, when the United States experienced the deadliest terrorist attack in its history.

The Chamber pauses this weekend to remember and honor the victims of that day, the first responders, the families who lost loved ones, and the members of our military who fought and died in the ensuing wars on terror.

May we forever cherish our freedoms and our heritage, and may we strive to live in peace and unity with our neighbors at home and abroad.

“For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.” — Deepak Chopra

Please watch the weekly In The Know for details as these get closer.

Also, Coffee & Connections, virtual style, will be held on Wednesday, February 10th at 8:30 a.m. via Zoom. You will receive an invitation soon with all of the details. In the meantime, get your one-minute elevator speech ready – yes, you can still get gonged – and we’ll have some fun contests and changes as well.
