Happy New Year!
With great excitement and honor, I will be serving as your 2019 Chamber President. A sincere thank you to each of you for this honorable opportunity. As a long-time resident of North Carolina, small business owner, employee, wife, and mother of two little ones, I feel lucky to be infused into such a strong community and group of authentic, hard-working individuals on so many levels.
I am writing to express my enthusiasm and best wishes as we shift our momentum to the next calendar year. We are all pulled in many directions. We wear many hats. Time is precious. I want to honor your time and your commitment to the Chamber by delivering concise, impactful guidance that can be practically implemented in your businesses.
With this goal in mind, I am beyond excited to announce the first themed year at our Chamber: 2019 Business Bootcamp. If you are ready to grow your business and change your life, you are in the right place! Get ready for a year-long journey of goal setting, work-life balance, social media strategy, sales training, philanthropic involvement and much more! Our hardworking board members have diligently selected an entire year’s worth of trainers, speakers, coaches, and leaders lined up and ready for you!
In addition to our action-packed meeting and vetted speakers, we will be passing out a “golden ticket” monthly to each of you that highlights how you can make the most of your Chamber membership. Decide to make the most of your membership this year!
So, let’s get started. Let’s set some goals. These goals will become North Stars for us that will aid in identifying and guiding our strategic forward momentum. The LCCC continues to follow our North Star of leading business growth. We will continue to cultivate our commitment to our members to provide the best programs and resources as well as attracting talent and jobs to our region. We will continue to grow our economy and build our community. We will maintain our momentum and continue to follow our North Star.
Let’s have a great year,
Kristin R. Johnson
