Chamber unveils new Strategic Area of Focus
2015 Chairman of the Board Tom Hilmes outlined the strategic vision for the Chamber at our Annual Meeting on January 30.
"If strategy is about getting from where you are to where you want to be," Hilmes said, "then it’s important to focus on the deviations, the gaps--the things that can take you out. Our businesses are the Job Creators. They drive economic opportunity. What they have told us is so important that we are adding a fourth strategic area of focus."
The intel that the Chamber receives from visiting with area employers is crucial. It helps the organization and the community stay ahead of trends in the economy and informs long term strategic objectives. In 2015 there are a number of trends that we have elevated as part of our new three year rolling action plan--workforce development is the largest but certainly not the only objective to receive higher priority this year.
