It may not be December 31, but today is the last day of the fiscal year for the Chamber. It has been a good, but challenging year for us. Even with all the distractions of the economy and the many layoff's we have been faced with, we have accomplished a great deal of things - you can read about them here. We finished off the year with 721 members; a far cry from 490 five years ago.
I would like to thank our Chairman of the Board of Directors, Kurt Harden with MedBen, for his leadership and direction this past year, as well as the entire Board. In addition, the staff at the Chamber have worked diligently to support you, our members, and I want to thank them for their dedication to the Chamber.
And finally, I would like to welcome our new Chairman, Kim Lust with State Farm Insurance. We are looking forward to working with Kim and I'm sure she will bring some new ideas to share with us.
So here's a toast to a successful 2009-2010!
