Greetings from the 2017 Chair of the Board:
I am both honored and excited to serve as the Lee’s Summit Chamber Chair of the Board.
It’s an opportune time to be a part of the Lee’s Summit Chamber, and the community in general. Lee’s Summit was recently named one of the best places to live by USA Today, and the Chamber is eager to keep the momentum moving forward.
It’s important to stop and ask the question, “Why are we doing what we’re doing?” Stay focused and keep an end goal in mind when starting a new venture, or even re-thinking an existing one. Be sure to use the Chamber as a resource to guide you along your path. We’ve entered a time when it’s necessary to adapt to new technology and embrace change to enhance your business opportunities.
Chamber membership offers value in many different forms. If you’re a start-up business seeking guidance, the Chamber can serve as a resource and get you in touch with the right people to help you. Maybe you’re an individual looking to expand your network and client base at one of the Chamber’s many networking events. The Chamber can help improve your visibility in the business forefront and keep you active in the community at the same time.
The Chamber remains committed to doing all we can to maintain and improve upon the foundation of our thriving business environment. Our active involvement in civic partnerships, legislative issues, committees and various organizations help us keep you, our members, top-of-mind in the community.
I encourage you to make the effort to be visible this year, both personally and professionally. We are an organization of more than 1,000 members and have reached that peak by supporting one another and our community.
I’m proud to call this community home and I want to say “thank you” to my family, colleagues and Chamber friends for their support. I appreciate the dedication from our past Chair, board members, staff, committees and, particularly, your contributions in making Lee’s Summit a great place to work, live and raise a family.
