I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday season. My name is Adrian Hilde your new Chamber president. I own BPOC Services, a commercial janitorial company, along with my business partner Tom Manion.
I have been a Member of the Chamber for going on six years now and I look forward to serving as your president. I encourage each and every one of you to tell me how the Chamber could be improved to serve you, the Member, better. Let’s all do our part to make this the best Chamber ever.
I would like to thank Larry Hoffman and the current Board of Directors for all of their hard work in the last year, as well as Ann and Kelsey, who are two of the best assets we have as a Chamber. I would also like to take a moment to welcome the newest addition to our Board, Lisa Hanley of Baker Septic Tank Pumping Inc.
If you have not taken advantage of ChamberMaster yet, please spend some time learning how to use this useful tool as I am more than positive it will be beneficial to you and your business. If you would like an introduction or a tutorial of ChamberMaster all you have to do is ask and we would be happy to assist you.
We are here to help you and the Ferndale community grow and prosper into a bigger and better place to live and work. Our annual Board Retreat is just around the corner and I am looking forward to holing up in a room for a few hours and deciding the direction of the Chamber for the next year.
If you have not yet RSVP’d for the Annual Banquet, you will be missing out on our Diamond Jubilee celebration. That’s right folks your Chamber has hit the 60 year milestone. I encourage you to come out and wish it a happy birthday with food and fun for all. This is a great event to connect to your fellow Chamber Members, celebrate accomplishments and support local scholarships by helping us raise money at our silent auction.
I hope to see you all at the banquet in my ill fitting suit.
—Adrian Hilde, 2016 Chamber President
