President’s Corner: February 2013

January 30th, 2013 by Craig Whitney

Craig WhitneyDear Chamber members,
We just wrapped our annual Operation Thank You event in January. By this time, you should have received your 2013 membership materials and, hopefully, a friendly visit from a Chamber staff member or volunteer. That’s the beauty of Operation Thank You. Its members serving other members and making lasting business connections.

Operation Thank You is an important way to show our members how much we appreciate what they do. I know I have said it before, but it’s worth reiterating … we have the best members in the world and without you, we wouldn’t be able to do all that we do. Your input is valuable to us and myself, as well as The Chamber staff, look forward to serving you each and every day.

We want you to let us know how we can best serve you. When you attend one of our events, make sure you fill out the survey. Send an email with your feedback to a Chamber staff member. We take this information and work to make our programs and event better and make them what people want them to be.

One example is our annual State of the Cities event, featuring the mayors of Dilworth, Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo. Many of you expressed you weren’t hearing the information you needed from individual speeches. So we changed the format and structured the event similar to a presidential debate, with questions submitted by the general membership.

Another example is our annual ChamberChoice Awards. This program has been completely revamped to feature you as the stars of the show. Plus, nominations are now open, so tell us about yours or another deserving business, not-for-profit or entrepreneur in our community.

Plus, don’t forget to register for the Economic Outlook Forum, which is structured around the presentation of our Business Outlook Survey. Hear what local business leaders, like you, have said about our local economy and their predictions for 2013 and beyond.

We have lots of great things coming up. As always, put your membership to work for you and let us know how we can help make 2013 the best year yet.

Thanks for your membership

Craig Whitney
