Board Retreat

"A Time to Move Forward" Theme set by 2011 Chairman, Dr. Kirtland Speaks of Expressions Chiropractic & Rehab at the planning retreat. 


Here's to starting a NEW YEAR!  At the Chamber we are starting off with a new smiling face, Doris McCants has replaced Mike Ruhnow as the Administrative Assistant.  We have a change of leadership, David C. Wilson, Sr has completed his year as Chairman and Dr. Kirtland Speaks will serve in 2011.  At the board of directors planning retreat on Dec 10, Dr. Speaks set the tone for the year by stating it was, "A time to move forward."  We will get our new website launched ASAP and we have a new look to the newsletter.  So, what will you do this year?  What will you do moving forward?  How can we help?
