Business View – December 2019/January 2020 / From the Editor
Talk about a labor of love. The overhaul of what’s in your inbox today – the new Business View – has certainly been just that. A little over a year ago, our team started a discussion about the magazine – its mission, purpose and value, promoting area businesses and our advertisers.
During this time, we talked with so many of you – via focus groups and surveys – to make sure, first, there was a need for this magazine; and, second, to gain insight on desired changes.
I am so proud of where we are today, but it could not have happened without Jennifer Jenkins and Sarah Grube with JJPR and Michelle Wise with Wise Design, who have been in lock-step through every stage of this process. And my amazing magazine team – Ashley Horn, Susan Rak-Blanchard and Carolyn Wilson – asked the right questions and challenged me to make this magazine one of which we all are so proud.
And of course you – the readers – are the reason we’ve worked so hard to get this right. For our members, thank you for your continued investment in the Chamber. And for potential members, I would strongly encourage you to consider becoming a member so you, too, can be included in this fantastic publication.
Here’s to the new and improved Business View!
