As you know our Chamber is a volunteer organization that requires the dedication of many individuals. The numerous events that our Chamber sponsors during the year are not only beneficial to our business community, but enhance our town as well. As a long- time active member of the Chamber I assure you it is well worth the time and effort to participate in these events. I am a firm believer that business breeds more business. The experience that I have acquired during my membership has been invaluable.
This year the Merrick Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating its 75th anniversary, an achievement we¹re all very proud to be a part of. Some of our board members have been serving on the Board of Directors for over twenty years, while others have just recently joined us. Relationships forged here have proven repeatedly to be a valuable tool for small business owners and professionals alike. In the next few months I urge you to become involved in our Chamber and take advantage of all we have to offer. Please check the calendar for the dates and times of our general and networking meetings. These events are an excellent opportunity to meet other members, sharpen your skills and form relationships that can open doors. We have superb speakers lined up; speakers who are geared towards helping our businesses grow and prosper. This will be one incredible year of grand moments, inspiring challenges and exceptional relationships to build on.
As we travel the rough road ahead, let us remember....

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2009,
