It’s March! First quarter is almost under our belts and I hope you have set the building blocks for your organizations to achieve some great benchmarks this year. I am here and ready to help connect you to resources that will help your organization grow.
We celebrated the recipients of our inaugural Richfield Circle of Excellence Awards at the Best Buy Corporate Campus. We believe each recipient sets a positive example within our Chamber community and will be highlighting them throughout 2018.
- Small Business of the Year- Midland Title
- Non-Profit of the Year- V.E.A.P.
- Business Leader of the Year- Brad Beard and Gordon Vizecky
- Business of the Year- Tom Wood Automotive Group
- Government Service- Tom Fitzhenery
- Sports Award- Holy Angels
As part of recognizing the positive example V.E.A.P. sets for our community, we will be highlighting ways to support them this year. Currently V.E.A.P. is having their annual food drive to raise $150,000 and 100,000 pounds of food and we are going to help them with this! All month long I encourage you to host a food drive at your office. (Download your printable poster here.) You can also bring non-perishable food items to the Chamber Office and any Chamber meeting. We will be collecting these items at our March 23, State of the City, meeting. Please bring all items and donations you have collected to this meeting and we will present to V.E.A.P.
The State of the City member meeting will highlight the Chamber agenda for this year. We will introduce our community partners and provide you with details on how to maximize your chamber membership. Check out the online Chamber calendar for other opportunities to connect.
