A Word From Chamber President Larry Hoffman

larryFall is upon us!   With that brings us just that much closer to another great year at the Chamber.   Some of the successful things we can look back at over this year are the Spring Run Off, the Chelsey Ebert Event, Flicks in the Park and of course the moving of the Chamber office to the Pioneer Pavilion location.

This will be my last note to you as Chamber President.  I will be stepping back and letting someone else take you to the next level.  As my second term winds down, I look back and reflect on the changes that have been made over these last few years to make the Chamber into a useful tool for you and your business.  The upgraded website, the new facilities, the expansion of the Visitor Center and interaction the Chamber can provide to you not only locally, but at a State level.

Some of the things that are left to do, will be coming soon.   The addition of the “ChamberMaster” software will be a great addition to the tools that will be available to help you grow your business.  This tool alone will enhance your membership.  Look for announcements coming up on how it can help you.

As I step away, I would like to thank the past and present Board members who helped me make the last 2 years something that I will look back on fondly.  I would also like to thank the staff for their hard work.   They put in long hours to make the Chamber work for you.  Finally, I would like to thank all the members for their support through my steep learning curve as president.

I look forward to the last 3 months, and hope to see you all at either a luncheon, or one of the upcoming events.

—Larry Hoffman, Ferndale Chamber President
