I want to begin by saying thank you to all, for your support. Your support and involvement have made the Chamber the effective voice of the local business community. I am honored to serve as Chairman of the Executive Board for the upcoming year of 2016.
I am looking forward to giving back to a community that has meant so much to me. I consider it a privilege to serve the community in this role. The opportunities in Terrell, Texas, that we all have enjoyed were made possible by all the previous leaders that have served before us. They have shared a vision for growth and development in this community.
I believe our charge this coming year, is to continue that legacy of looking forward to seize the opportunities for our community's future.
Our 2016 planning retreat will continue to focus on the growth and forward planning that is occurring in our community. The Chamber will continue creating opportunities that will maintain services to businesses, the citizens, as well as position our community for growth.
It’s easy to get involved — just become a Chamber Member and volunteer your time.
When fulfilling your business and personal needs for goods and services we strongly encourage our citizens to "buy locally". Whenever you contact members, let them know you're contacting them because they are a Chamber Member. It's good business and it's good for our community.
I look forward to a very exciting 2016. I encourage everyone to get involved, help our Chamber, City and Schools to be all we can be.
