To Our Members:
It's hard to believe that we are already well into the New Year - 2013 - WOW! Where did the time go? We had such a great 2012 and I am looking forward to all of us working together on making 2013 even better!
I want to thank Ahern's Catering for hosting our NCCC Annual Membership dinner on January 23, 2013. We enjoyed a great meal, wonderful camaraderie and a lot of great networking opportunities (and the dinner was delicious!). Thank you to our sponsors - Lorain County Community College, EMH Healthcare and Columbia Gas.
The new members of our 2013 NCCC Board of Trustees were sworn in at our Annual Meeting. I am pleased to introduce our North Coast Chamber of Commerce 2013 Board of Trustees. They are: Ivy Arndt from Residence Inn - Westlake; Rod Bock from Artists Studios, Inc; Rob Capretto from Cleveland Clinic - Avon Lake Family Health Center; Jerry Cline from Andrews & Wyatt, LLC; Ray Frank from Columbia Gas; Dan Helm from the Lake Erie Crushers; Jim Judge from Joyce Buick, GMC; Theresia Oreskovic from Peter & Co. Jewelers; Geoffrey Smith from Geoffrey R. Smith Law; Todd Wearsch from Duraclean, and William A. Young, Jr. from St. John Medical Center.
Adding these wonderful people to our NCCC Officers provides an outstanding leadership team which will equal a very good year. Our officers are: Past President TJ Worsencroft; Vice President Mike Abfall; Vice President Mike Bramhall; Vice President Ray Gilles; Treasurer Jennifer Henthorn; Secretary Julie Cantrell, and our Executive Director John Sobolewski, will all serve another year with me as President.
The excitement is building for the launch of our second Power of More initiative with the addition of 2 more Chambers. That totals 6 chambers that will offer our members more opportunities to attend networking events and to enter the raffle to win the beautiful outdoor patio kitchen from Outdoor Dreamscapes!
The Power of More chambers this year are Fairview Park Chamber, North Coast Chamber, North Olmsted Chamber, North Ridgeville Chamber, Olmsted Chamber and West Shore Chamber. Discover how the Power of More can help grow your business!
I look forward to seeing all of you during the next several weeks at our upcoming Business After Hours and Networking Luncheons. Also, please mark your calendars for the Annual Mayors' Lunch on March 20th at Tom's Country Place. This lunch is well attended and an event you don't want to miss.
