On Monday I was able to join about 20 other Chamber Executives from the western region of the United States as we met to discuss and plan the next annual conference for the Western Association of Chamber Executives. About half of us were able to break off for dinner that evening, and I once again have to boast about the colleagues-turned-friends... it is so important to surround yourself with greatness if you aspire to also be great. I'm appreciative of my short, but impactful trip to Phoenix with these amazing mentors.
I've been just as grateful for so many new businesses opening around town... each week it seems someone new is joining our Chamber, whether they are prepping to open their doors, just getting settled in enough to dig in with us, or just learning about who we are and what we do, there is no BAD reason to not become part of a group who will help you achieve your goals. Thanks to all those who have been loyal members and the many I still hope will become such.
