By Bill Sisson, President & CEO, Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce


As you read this issue of The Business View, I suspect that many of you are reflecting on the passing of the first two months of 2015 and setting about charting a course for the months ahead. The end of the first quarter is a good time to think about how much progress is being made on the goals you and your business are firmly committed to in the New Year.


At the Mobile Area Chamber, we recently shared with you the productive visioning and strategic planning process that went into our Plan of Action for 2015. That process determines the course and priorities for our organization. Our goals revolve around capitalizing on our community’s traditional growth sectors such as maritime, chemicals, logistics/distribution, healthcare, energy and advanced manufacturing, as well as new burgeoning ones like aviation/aerospace and IT/high-tech. And we will continue to focus on small and minority business development and maintain our strong position as the voice of business in the Mobile region.


As in the past, we have benefited from the engagement, leadership and insight provided by our members to help determine our direction. Likewise, there is an abundance of talent on our staff and within our committees, councils, task forces and on our board of directors and board of advisors. I invite you to grab one of us after one of the many Chamber events, or sit down with us over a cup of coffee and let us know how the Chamber can help your company be successful.


Great things will happen if we continue to rally around our common goals.
