I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions. But when writing a regular column, it’s certainly helpful to make a plan – and what’s a plan if not a resolution? In the New Year, first and foremost, I encourage all members to join me and resolve to take better advantage of all the Chamber’s networking opportunities.


A good way to start will be during the Chamber’s 179th Annual Meeting on Jan. 19. Those 1,200 individuals in attendance will be from businesses of all sizes, representing various business sectors that are thriving in our region. Further, it’s a great opportunity to mix and mingle with our new board, elected officials and many people from our partner organizations.


During it, we’ll report on how we measured up against our goals for 2015 and learn more about the 2016 Chamber platform. It will also give everyone an opportunity to get to know our 2016 Chairman Mark Nix, president and CEO of Infirmary Health. And, of course, we’ll highlight the successes of our 2015 Chairman Frank Lott, president of Heritage Homes.


I feel certain that 2016 will be yet another banner year in our great region. As usual, there will be many ways to take advantage of the networking opportunities and business services the Chamber offers.


But in 2016, I resolve to put an even greater focus on meeting Chamber members, old and new. I’ll look forward to networking with all of you in the coming year.
