It's hard to believe that another year has come and gone.  As the year ends I am happy to say that the Chamber has had a very productive year.  We have wrapped up our final major fund raising event and it was a success.  All three of our major events--the Gala, the Taste of Cedar Hill & Business Expo, and the Golf tournament --were a big hit and I'm happy to report the Chamber is better off financially than ever before.


The accomplishments of these events was the direct result of a group of dedicated volunteers. I want to thank them for their hard work and commitment to the chamber this past year.  The continued success of the chamber is dependent on the volunteers that give their time and effort. We have had our board retreat for next year and I'm excited to say that I believe that 2014, under the leadership of Maranda Auzenne, will be another productive year.


I want to thank the great staff for their hard work and dedication to making the Chamber great.  Amanda, Michelle, and Adrienne have done a fantastic job with the day to day operations to insure the Chamber's progress.


I also want to take this opportunity to thank my executive board and the board of directors for their efforts in making this year great.  Their dedication and hard work has made this year easy for me and has contributed to the accomplishments of the Chamber.


My year as chairman is over but I want to encourage all of you, the membership,  to get involved and help the Chamber to continue to grow.  The Chamber is only as strong as its membership so the success of the Chamber is really up to you.  Please get involved in 2014 and make the Chamber and its programs work for you to help your businesses prosper.
