ECOC Belated Friday Blast (FRIDAY 8/20/10)


Friday Blast
Passing on the Baton
Robin had planned to share with you her plans, however in preparation for her mother’s surgery, she was not able to get done all she wanted.
She is presently transitioning to an Ambassador position with the Chamber of Commerce. She plans to make herself available to encourage our members, however she needed a change in her life in order to help her family, so she has stepped down as Executive Director.
You are not left without a Director. I, Sheri Cox, have stepped into the position. My intent and desire is to help the members be as successful as possible. I am happy to answer your questions. If I don’t have an answer…I’ll get one for you.
In the mean time, I look forward to meeting or speaking with each of you very soon! I am in the office from 11 – 3 Monday through Friday. You can reach me there at 505-286-2577 or by email at
Change on the Horizon
You may or may not know…
The Board of Directors has made some decisions regarding the Chamber which they believe will help them to better serve you, the Members. Their desire is to help you, as business owners, be as successful as you can. They also want to make sure you are getting the best value for your money.
The big change is regarding the office. In September we will serve you from a virtual office.
On Friday September 10 we will begin the move out of teh current office space. Our contact information will remain the same.
