What a fantastic way to start out 2016! Thank you to the over 220 members who joined us for the January general membership meeting. It is safe to say that it was a lunch that will not soon be forgotten.
I hope that at the lunch you were able to gain motivation, build relationships, learn something and have fun. Yes, I said fun! For those of you who know me, it was no surprise to you when I ripped up Erin’s agenda (it was, however, a surprise to her). I am a firm believer that if our members are comfortable, welcomed and having a good time they are going to more likely to build stronger relationships, referrals and businesses. This year I will work to make sure that you are each engaged, building your business and having a good time doing it, i.e. Having Fun!
Speaking of fun, if you haven’t bought your tickets yet for our Taste of Vegas Casino night, the clock is ticking and tickets are selling out! This great event features tastings from 12 of our member restaurants and caterers as well as samples from our Presenting Sponsor, Krey Distributing. The event will also include an open bar, music from Rhythm of the Night, gaming tables, and live Horse Races (well, sort of). Only 300 tickets are available and sell out each year. Gentlemen, if you haven’t bought your Valentine’s Day present yet, tickets to Taste of Vegas would be a great idea.
You may begin noticing in the Monday Connection, that we are now including a Did You Know portion. Your O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries is always working on providing new benefits and services to our members. Please be sure to check out the Did You Know portion of our weekly newsletter so that you can keep up to speed on all the ways your Chamber can help your business succeed.
See you soon!
2016 Chairman of the Board
