I would like to wish everyone a successful and enlightened 2014. Also I would like to thank our Chamber members and community for your tremendous support throughout the year. With your collaboration and encouragement, our Chamber has grown stronger and will remain the central business resource for our members.
As a local architectural firm of 20 years and a member of the Chamber, we have come to understand the important role the Chamber brings to our business community. Supporting our members both large and small with educational and marketing opportunities are essential endeavors of the Chamber. From celebrating initial milestones with ribbon cutting ceremonies to advocating policy through our political advocacy, the Chamber is a business voice sought out beyond the city limits of Bakersfield.
Cindy Pollard, president and CEO, and her capable staff are poised to heighten the Chamber’s vital responsibilities to our community. As we are all forced to reshape and reinvent our business models, rest assured the Chamber is working alongside our members to confront important issues. The Chamber will strive to make this year of challenge and change one of knowledge and accomplishment as well. We look forward to implementing programs that will support our businesses and help realize our collective success.
I invite you to join us and help grow our Chamber and continue to strengthen our amazing community.
