My Year in review
Next week will mark one year as your Chamber Director. In this past year, I have seen and done many things with the Chamber. All of which, are experiences that will make me a better director for upcoming events as they unravel in 2014-15. As we make this journey together as membership and community, I encourage you to talk to me with questions, rumors, and suggestions. Without an open communication and understanding of our organizations direction, we collectively limited our potential. Get involved in 2014-15, let’s build a better Windom together.
