Chairman's Message                                                                                    December 2011

Kirt Speaks-family

If I said "Thank you" 100 times it would not express enough how much I appreciate everyone that has helped make 2011 such a great year.  As my year as the president of the Chamber ends, I want to wish you a Blessed 2012 and tell you how much it meant to serve you  this year.  I look forward to my new role and welcome Steve Mason, our new chairman with open arms.  I will always be a part of the Chamber by being involved in the community. My office has been able to expand to 3 locations, so I now can serve you and your family's chiropractic and wellness needs in Cedar Hill, North Richland Hills and Waxahachie.  Please call my office,  if I can ever be of help to you at 972-291-4455. 


Again, thank you for a successful year.  I wanted to end with a great quote from Corrie ten Boom "Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives, is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see."  Expect a great future!

Ambassadors Giving Back                 Dec 3 @ 6:00 PM

 Blankets & Business   

Great business leads, great food, great FUN!  Ambassadors are a vital part of the Chamber Program of Work.  They serve as the face of the Chamber and assist in welcoming and getting members involved so that they can maximize the benefits they receive from 

membership.  They regularly meet at a restaurant and network, except December which has been saved for a Christmas Celebration.  And this celebration will definitely be a fun evening.  Towne Place Suites has a goal to produce 600 blankets for area children's hospitals this holiday season.  This year the Ambassadors have decided to bring the Holiday Networking Event to the hotel and assist Marriott in reaching that goal.
