It is my honor to be the Board Chair for the Greenfield Area Chamber of Commerce in 2021.
Our mission is to “Partner for Prosperity” with our members, the community, our schools, and local government to make Hancock County and the surrounding area even stronger.
COVID-19 has challenged all of us to re-think how we conduct business and bring value to customers. Our Chamber is no different. While many in-person events have been cancelled, we are continuously looking for ways to serve our members during this public health crisis. For instance, we helped organize a virtual job fair, promoted shop local events, and continue to share resources and member services through our weekly e-newsletter.
Our community needs a strong ecosystem of business leaders and employers now more than ever. It is our goal to assist all members in their continued success and contributions to our community's quality of life. Our Chamber is one of the strongest voices for the businesses and organizations in our area. The Greenfield Area Chamber of Commerce is the largest business organization in Hancock County.
Your Chamber Board of Directors is comprised of bright, talented, professional men and women working across all aspects of business and civic organizations. They give their time, talent, and energy to make the chamber an asset for our members. We are a proud advocate for businesses and celebrate their achievements and accomplishments.
I look forward to working with our Chamber members, Board of Directors, and excellent Chamber staff this year and beyond. We will continue to gauge the needs of our members in this unprecedented time and creatively respond.
We thank each of our Greenfield Area Chamber of Commerce members for their commitment, investment, and support of our programs and events. We look forward to seeing you in person again soon.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve you – our members – as your Chair for 2021.
