A Special Announcement From Our President
Dear Chamber Members.
We all know too well about 2020 and the hopefulness of 2021.
The past months have truly tested us as individuals, businesses and to be totally transparent, as a Chamber. Many of us found ourselves focused on self-survival for several months, figuring out how to pivot, adjust and create a “new normal”.
In doing so we lost focus on the bigger picture; caring for and supporting each other and working together collectively for the greater good.
While we continue to deal with a level of uncertainty during the current climate, the most important thing that matters to us is you, our members, our community, our camaraderie, goals, and planning for the future. The Board has and will continue to promote a positive business and community environment and quality of life.
The Board and I wish to carry on the legacy of the Chamber, founded over 80 years ago, to ensure the best possible support and opportunities for each one of its members.
I am currently steering the wheel of this legacy and am reaching out to each one of you to play your part and offer your support. I would like for each member to try and identify a new member to join us in 2021; for each member to pay their membership dues in a timely fashion (we are happy to work with you on an individual basis to discuss payment options etc.) and for each member to offer ideas for growth, collaboration and inclusion.
Due to Covid-19 safe distancing guidelines we moved all our monthly luncheons and mixers to Zoom, including virtual ribbon cuttings, the Annual Installation and Meet the City Luncheon. We offer several opportunities for you to promote your business, the latest being a 20 second video we will happily share via all social media channels. So please be sure to take advantage of this offering.
For the time being we must continue to mix and mingle, share best practice, and support each other virtually, hoping we will all be together in-person again soon. I personally hope you will continue to join us each month and for those who have been absent, consider joining us once more.
The Board and I miss all of you and know we will come to the end of this COVID chapter soon.
Take care and stay well.
President Signal Hill Chamber of Commerce
