Many thanks for the op­por­tu­nity

The Covington News - - Front page -

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.
