The President's Letter
Spring is in the air! It’s the perfect time to get out and build your network and business. The Greater Catonsville Chamber of Commerce is here to help you! We have great programs and events coming up. Please make sure you download and post our 2017 Chamber Events Calendar from the Chamber Newsletter. In addition, if you are interested in sponsoring an event or becoming involved with a committee, please contact Teal Cary, our Executive Director, at the chamber office.
NEW this year is Network the Ville!!! Linda Sauer and her Business Networking Committee is helping our members make connections by providing these inexpensive networking opportunities. We thank you, Rooster + Hen and Wieland’s BBQ, for hosting our first networking event on February 13th. Being a host one of a Network the ‘Ville mixer is a great way to introduce your company to our members while making business connections. Watch for details for the next networking event at Peace A Pizza on March 13th at 5:30pm.
As a business owner, I am constantly finding ways to educate myself to enhance my business. Thanks to Sally Grace and her Business Development Committee, the new Bacon ‘N Business learning seminars are an easy way for me to learn new skills. The first seminar is on March 2 at Brightview Rolling Hills and I will definitely attend. Tammira Lucas of The Business Doctor will be the speaker and we are starting our morning learning about the latest trends in social media. These events cannot happen without the support of our sponsor, Dennis Sullivan of Breakthrough Pros, and our host, Brightview Rolling Hills. And mark your calendars now for part 2 of the series on May 4th when we learn how to improve our business website’s Google ranking.
Looking ahead to April, we will be giving our members three different networking events to choose from: Network the ‘Ville on April 10 at Edible Arrangements, a MEGA networking breakfast with the Baltimore Washington Corridor Chamber at Overhills Mansion, and the Southwest Networking & Trade Show at the Arbutus Fire Hall on April 19. Look for me to promote my business at ALL three of these marketing opportunities.
Your Chamber continues to work hard for you! Your job is to attend these programs and events, stay involved, build relationships, and see your business grow!
