Happy New Year, and here’s
to a prosperous 2013. My frst
four months as your chamber  president and CEO has gone by quickly. I have met withas many members and com-munity leaders as I can to gaina better sense of what’s oneveryone’s mind. From thosemeetings I am entering 2013with a lot of excitement andoptimism.With economic developmentopportunities on the horizon,the chamber is postured toserve as the source for busi-ness growth, retention, at-traction and small businessdevelopment.You have trusted us withyour membership investment.We ask that you continue to partner with us in engagingkey business groups, govern-ment leaders and educators toimprove the economic healthof our city.I’ve discovered though thatthere remain many challengesahead for business and thiscommunity. An uncertaineconomic climate continues toforce businesses to be innova-tive and do things differentlythan they’ve ever done before.Many people believe that thechamber should get involvedwith a variety of initiatives andactivities. Some of the ideas
are good, but do they ft within
our mission? And, does thechamber have the capacity totake them on?We have realigned our teamand are working hard to de-velop a strategic plan that of-fers focus and direction. Our mission is to advocate for the business community and pro-vide opportunities for businessengagements and growth. Asa catalyst for business growth,we will seek common ground.We’ve all heard the old sayingif you keep doing the samething you can expect the sameresults. If we seek change, wemust reach a point where we place our community’s interestahead of our own. Let’s growtogether.We look forward to com-municating with you about our  progress. I encourage you tooffer feedback by emailing meat terra@northaugustacham- ber.org.
