Working for you…
We’ve had a busy week at the Chamber.
Last Saturday the Chamber Board of Directors met at Jim Bouton’s ranch in Torreon to work out details for 2014. Dates are locked in for our events this year, we’ve looked at policies, and generally gotten organized for the year! We will be beginning our Mixers on the 3rd Thursday of every month on March 20 at ReMax Western Heritage…more details to come later.
Please contact the office if you want to book a mixer this year. We’ll be happy to answer any questions about what it takes to be a host.
Thursday afternoon for lunch we co-hosted the Veteran’s Business Administration Luncheon with the Moriarty Chamber. We received a great deal of information for veterans who want to or already own businesses. If you missed the meeting, please feel free to email the office for information about how to contact the right agencies or individuals to learn more.
Thursday evening the Leadership Edgewood Class hosted the Edgewood Candidate’s forum. Three candidates for Town Council in Edgewood were grilled by Rory McClannahan, Editor and General Manager of the East Mountain Telegraph, who asked his own questions, and then the audience filled out questions and he asked those as well.
We appreciate all who helped and attended, especially Rory and our stellar timekeeper, Kathy Courreges. Our other moderator, Leota Harriman was ill and unable to make the forum.
Rita Loy Simmons, Chuck Ring and Mike Turner are running for two positions. If you live in Edgewood, please be sure to vote on Tuesday March 4.
Things are humming with the Economic Development committee. We appreciate the help and skills of our committee. We will soon begin to see results of the hard work.
We are also preparing a research study and will be asking our membershipto be included in answering questions about growth and what you would like to see in our community. We will be forming focus groups, and sending out questionnaires. We will keep you posted when it’s time to ask you for your input about you would like to have in our community.
