Happy New Year – a phrase you have likely heard many times over the past few weeks. For many of us, a new year brings a sense of renewal, a time to regenerate, revive, rebuild.

We do this in our own lives by making resolutions, selecting meaningful words to shape our year, or committing to a life of better health and wellness. (By the way, my word for this year is FOCUS.)

I have found it is no different in our work. It is important to take a glance at what the past year has given us and to focus on the year ahead.

In 2019, the Chamber welcomed 37 new members, held nine ribbon cuttings, continued 14 vibrant programs, and continued to promote economic development and business recruitment. We had a great year, but we know it is a positive and necessary step for the future to make goals and plans for what is to come.

Our goal is to be better, be more for our members and our community in 2020.
