A Message from the Chair

Greetings,

 

I am honored to serve as the Chairperson of the Board this year, and I am filled with hope for the future. I am grateful and deeply touched by the outpouring of support I have received in my first year as Board Chair.

 

We have all been through a challenging two years with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Throughout this time, the Chamber has offered an abundance of business and marketing opportunities. In 2020, we brought our events online and produced 39 webinars with 1700 viewers. We have maintained strong communication with our members to discover what you need and how best to serve you. We are working to continue to create opportunities to help your business thrive and prosper in the coming year and beyond.

 

Our vision for the future is Business Strong, Community Strong, and Chamber Strong. I look forward to working with you in seeking solutions that are perfect for your business and our community. Your expertise, participation, and ideas are vital to building success and keeping Alameda vibrant.

Stay safe and healthy, and let us know how we can help.

 

Kelly E. Lux
