As we transition back to more and more in-person events, it was my pleasure to host our first Business After 5 Mixer of 2021 at Carlton Oaks Golf Club last Wednesday night. To add to the fun, we joined forces with our friends and neighbors, the East County Chamber of Commerce. It was wonderful seeing so many members from both organizations and allowing for opportunities for our business communities to network and do what they do best: get back to business!
EC Chamber's CEO, Rick Wilson, has been a breath of fresh air for our region since he took the helm two years ago. Although COVID has put a damper on the amount of time we've been able to spend together face-to-face, he has done an outstanding job maintaining our relationship as neighboring chambers and constantly offering to partner on resources and ideas to make sure our business communities thrive. I'm so thankful for our continued partnership and look forward to offering more opportunities as the year progresses.
