People. Business. Community.

You may think these are just words. But, they are more than that. When people thrive
our businesses excel and, when our businesses excel, our community prospers.
And, the essence and cohesion of these words are captured through the stories
and best practices found inside the pages of Thriving!
But, they extend beyond the pages. It's woven into the Chamber's new direction
and core focus. It is how we are working to better serve you and the entire business
community. It is how we are creating access to accelerate ideas, opportunities
and solutions. It's opening up the possibilities associated with connecting all local
businesses and individuals to one another and to resources.
And, Thriving! is just the start.
In this edition, you'll learn how one CEO is overcoming trials by finding the right
people in life and business. Employees are an organization's greatest asset. When
employees are successful in their positions and thriving, they do their best work
for their employers and go above and beyond as engaged employees. When this
happens, businesses excel.
A prosperous community needs thriving individuals and successful businesses, and
it also needs support and involvement of the business community to help maximize
the opportunities and solve challenges in order to continue to grow and prosper. In
this edition, business and community members came together to find a solution to
issues impacting local elementary-aged students.
So, as you can see, alone they are just words. But, together, People, Business
and Community evoke a sense of strength, unity and impact!
As you turn the pages of Thriving!, our hope is that you come away with nuggets
of information to help you thrive, your business excel and our community prosper.
