We hope that you have been able to schedule time to participate in the weekly Thursday Zoom meetings being conducted by the Chamber. These have been instrumental in helping to foster communications among members, finding answers or shared solutions to difficult questions, and maintaining the “family-like” hallmark of this Chamber. Certainly, these unusual circumstances and uncertainty have made business and social relationships increasingly difficult. The last Zoom meeting focused on the importance of networking and building mutually beneficial business relationships because that is an investment in the future. Business conditions are unlike any we have experienced before, so relying on your previous networking contact activities and relationships created through your participation in Chamber events can be invaluable. Revisiting those activities can continue to lead to new business opportunities or referrals that may help fellow members.

A very useful guide to building successful business relationships is summarized with benefits and tips on a website titled Money Crashers. We believe it is a worthwhile source as a reminder of the rewards that can accrue from implementing some of these strategies. This is the link:

The next Chamber Zoom meeting is scheduled for this coming Thursday, June 18 at 11:00 a.m. The event is listed on the Chamber website and you are invited to participate.
