PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE, MARCH 2017
If I were pressed to summarize the most important thing about the El Sobrante Chamber of Commerce into one word, I would say SERVICE.
The Chamber serves the business community in a variety of ways. We facilitate networking opportunities between the members, future members and the community, through mixers, special events like ribbon-cuttings, co-sponsoring events with our non-profit agency partners like the Boys and Girls Club, SPAWNERS, and of course producing the El Sobrante Stroll in September.
The Chamber serves the community at large by providing information about our member businesses and organizations, and notifies the community of planning meetings, workshops and community forums to facilitate interaction with the local agencies and governments working to improve the community, its infrastructure, and our quality of life.
The Chamber serves visitors and outside interested parties by providing information about our community when requested.
Most interesting of all is that the Chamber is served by a dedicated group of individuals who provide talents and time on a volunteer basis. We who have volunteered to serve the community through the El Sobrante Chamber of Commerce have been rewarded for our service by gaining valued friends, an active and vital Chamber, and a wonderful community – dare I say the best community in the county!
Look through the newsletter or our website to find the schedules of upcoming meetings from a variety of organizations. Find an event that speaks to you, and ask how you can be of service. We are a great community, in part because so many are willing to be of service to one another. Don’t you want to be a part of that?
If you have an idea or suggestion, you can contact me by phone at the chamber office, 510-223-0757, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At your service,
