Is it summer
yet? That might seem like an unfair
question given the relatively tame winter we’ve had thus far. (Blizzard
excluded.) Weather aside, 2015 is off
to a great start for the Chamber! We are
trying our hand at loads of new initiatives with all of our members in mind. We’re only 4 weeks in and look at what we’re
for a great networking opportunity? Join
us on February 4th at 8:30am for the first ever, B.Y.O.C. (Buy Your
Own Coffee) Networking hour at ROAST.
This is a great way to mix and mingle with fellow business folk…members
and non-members are welcome!
to meet your new Chamber President? Come on down for lunch at Lucia’s
on Wednesday, February 11th where I will be joined by the rest of
the board for our annual Meet The President Luncheon. This is a great way to get involved and meet
your fellow board members.
The Strategic Communications Committee! The Chamber has formed a
sub-committee to address the efficacy of how we communicate with both our
membership and the public. We are working hard to bring our systems up to speed
so that we can work to better serve you, our members.
you a woman in business? Looking to get
back into business? Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about our
newest intiative: WOW: Women Of Winchester
and our inaugural event on March 16th
at The Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington. This new, intimate, gathering is
designed to attract like-minded businesswomen looking to be powered by bright
thought before I go out to shovel (yet again):
a special thank you to Patrick Fortin, our unflappable leader when it
comes to the ever challenging topic of parking in the town of Winchester. Under
his guidance and leadership, we have secured an open dialogue with the town
leadership so that our business owners’ concerns can be heard. Patrick, your patience and knowledge
surrounding this transition is invaluable and we so appreciate you serving as
the voice of our members.
