Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!

2018 was a terrific year for us at The Chamber. Despite being a small team, we are proud of what we accomplished last year, but we couldn't have done it without you. Thank you for your support and participation!

With 2019 marking the 100th anniversary of The Chamber, last year seems very special to me. I am grateful to have been part of the team, who carried The Chamber over to the next century. This includes you, so stay tuned for ways to celebrate. What a year this is going to be!
We will continue to work hard every single day to progress the organization forward, helping to promote our business community and finding new ways to connect both in person and online. We have already started. This Friday is the Young Professional Network, Casino Night. If you have not bought your tickets, there is still time. Registration is open until January 24th! The YPN is made up of young business professionals who aim at making a difference in the lives of our young community. Let’s show them our support! and have fun while doing it. If you have not yet checked out 'YOUR' FREE, One-Stop "Resources for Business Success" Center, which is now LIVE on our website! Don't hesitate. This is an incredible opportunity for our business community, who otherwise would have to spend thousands of dollars for such data. This program is sponsored by BBSI-Southern Oregon to help our local businesses be more successful. Thank you to BBSI - Southern Oregon! Contact them for training information so you can learn to master these tools.

Knowledge is key to your success and together we can help you get the answers you need to be successful.

Explore over 1500 links to resources to help your business thrive. New links are added every month. Let The Resources help you reach YOUR business goals. The Size-Up tool provides you with expert regional analysis on advertising strategies, demographics data and business and industry information. Use this tool to analyze your business' position in the market and get the competitive intelligence you need to succeed.

So now we welcome the new year, full of new things or the same old thing, but with a twist.

Hope to see you soon.
