Message from Board Member, Larry Schweitzer        
 

                          
   
April brings the warm weather and the sound of Play Ball as the baseball season gets underway. So now is as good a time as any to Play Ball with the Melville Chamber of Commerce.
I have now been a member of the chamber for 5 years, after being involved in other chambers. None of the others can compare to the offerings and value the chamber brings. I got hooked on this chamber when I took a booth at the annual Chamber Business Expo. I was only in business for a year, and was excited at the prospect to meet business decision makers in the hope of growing my business. I actually picked up 2 clients at that event and now I am one of the first to register for the annual event.
I was very lucky to moderate a panel discussion in March during one of the morning Business Breakfast Series meetings. The topic was 'A Successful Website is Secure....ls Yours?'. The meeting, as most of our meetings are, was attended by over 50 members and non-members. Our meetings offer time to network before and after the morning topic. As I walk around the room at any given event, the discussion is more than just simply an exchange of business cards. People are engaged in discussion about business, politics, sports, and the weather. We all know people do business with people they like. Without developing relationships, a business cannot grow.

So if you want to grow your business, get involved in the Chamber. Join a committee, meet as many people as you can. Set up meetings outside of the Chamber and I guarantee your Chamber experience will prove to be a home run.

Best regards,
