President’s Message -March 10th, 2016

Dear Chamber Members,

It finally feels like spring is on the way! I cannot wait to see the tulips and daffodils sprouting in my yard, which brings to mind some of the exciting things “sprouting” in the Chamber this year for you. Our plan is to have, at minimum, quarterly seminars that relate to your business and employees. In January we sponsored a seminar titled Turning your Hobby into a Business, presented by Brian Savage of North Valley Business Consulting, CCC. As a result of that session those attending expressed interest in further business related seminars to help them move forward, so stay tuned for more on that front. We’re working on the building the calendar for the remainder of the year and will be sure to keep you apprised of these scheduled events. In the meantime, keep checking the calendar to learn of events taking place in our community.

The Chamber office is getting a face lift and is closed presently for renovations. We’ll be certain to let you know when it is complete and would love to have you all stop by. We are looking for new brochures and information to help promote your businesses that can be displayed in the office and would be happy to swing by and pick those items up from you. Let us know what you would like to have displayed and remember if you have any events coming up in 2016 that you would like posted or featured on the website, please let us know what and when they are. We are also working on welcome packets to send out when calls come in asking what’s going on in Swanton, more to come on that.

We have a lot of irons in the fire presently and want you to know that we are committed to you and promoting your business. A reminder to you as a business owner, along with your membership you gain access to the VACE Dental and Vision plans. Be sure to go to the Vace website for more information and registration. www.vaceinsurance.com

Our Farmers Market has moved to the Swanton Library upstairs. Stop in every other Saturday until the weather breaks and we can hold this outside. We’re always looking for new vendors, so please reach out to us if you’re interested and be sure to check us out on Facebook!

As always it is a privilege to be serving our community and I and the great board of directors team in place look forward to providing our members with exposure and opportunity.

Sincerely,

Suzanne Washburn
