Business View – February 2020 / From the Editor
Every November, the magazine’s editorial team sits and discusses items to include in this issue focusing on the Chamber’s year in review.
It is amazing how much your Mobile Area Chamber has accomplished over the course of the last year. On the following pages we are sharing our best work in four core areas of focus – jobs, advocacy, value and excellence. Also, we are including a snapshot of our program of work for 2020, and the strategic goals guiding us long-term, and introducing you to the 2020 board of directors.
There is a lot to take in over the next 60-plus pages, and I hope it conveys the Chamber’s commitment to grow the local economy, thus providing more resources and opportunities for you to raise your family here.
I would encourage you to also share some of what you read with co-workers, friends and family. The more people promoting this community, and supporting our assets, the better off we are. The Chamber has a tremendous amount of work to do in 2020, but it’s nice to take a moment to reflect on the hard work accomplished in 2019, and recharge the batteries for what’s to come. Be sure to mark your calendar and attend the Chamber’s annual meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 5. Details are on the calendar located on page 61.
