Many thanks for the opportunity
I want to thank the Board of Directors for giving me the opportunity to serve them as the new Chamber President. I consider it a sincere honor that they would entrust me with the leadership of the members and our staff.
I would also like to thank the Chamber staff for welcoming me on board. We have a great team in place and I look forward to learning from you and growing our “value add” to our members as well as the greater Newton County community.
If you are familiar with the Balanced Scorecard in business strategy, this is where we are focused as a Chamber team right now. The Balanced Scorecard is a spotlight on these four critical areas: People, Processes, Customers, and Profit. These four components are significant to every organizations success and they must be kept in order. The foundation of any organization is its people. I am very impressed with the people of the Newton Co. Chamber. The staff, the volunteers, Board members, Committee Chairs, Ambassadors, Chamber Champions - outstanding! Getting to know our people will be our first order of business. In the near future we will move into our processes, membership, and profits, but only after we grow in understanding of whom we are as a team.
Again, thanks for letting me serve as your Chamber President. I look forward to our future together.
