2023 Chairman's Welcome
Dear SCCCC Members and Friends,
It is both a privilege and an honor to serve as Chairman of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce once again. I feel fortunate to work with a group of leaders who represent so many industries, professions, associations, and organizations that make up our business community, and I am humbled by the opportunity to lead this team so committed to the success of Southern Chester County.
Despite some of the most challenging years in recent memory, Southern Chester County continues to grow and thrive and remains a place where people want to live, work, and play. Our region offers a distinctly favorable business climate that stimulates economic development and business growth.
Our Chamber is committed to supporting that development and growth so everyone in our communities can succeed.
Our objectives for 2023 remain relatively simple and focused:
First, we are going to grow our Chamber membership by both retaining current and welcoming new members. We will be fully implementing a New Member Roadmap, which will provide a more targeted path for Members in their first 3 years of membership. With this more individualized approach, we hope to provide an ROI to the Members earlier by more effectively matching Member needs with Chamber programming and resources.
And second, we want to best utilize the strengths, interests, passions, and values of our Board members! The Board is dedicated to follow-through on the Chamber’s Mission as we deliver on our commitment to Lead, Educate, Connect and Advocate. With these two areas of focus, I am confident that 2023 will see the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce reach the 500-member level, something that has never been done in its history.
So, as the push for 500 begins, I want to thank you, our Members, who provide us the reason to do what we do best - listen and support you to the highest degree possible. As always, we welcome your participation in one of our many standing committees as we strive to reach this goal. I again want to thank our leadership on the Board of Directors and the Chamber Staff in advance for their hard work and dedication as we move into another exciting year. I look forward to all that lies ahead!
