Message from the Chairman
On behalf of the entire Chamber Board of Directors, I would like to thank you all for supporting the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce. Your chamber of commerce represents more than 2,000 companies across our region. I also want to thank our past board chairman, Cathy Foraker, for her vision, leadership and tireless commitment that led us through an amazing 2012. Last year was a prosperous year for growing business and building community in the Rogers-Lowell Area.
In 2013 the Chamber will celebrate 91 years as the premier advocacy organization for business in the Rogers-Lowell Area. Throughout its history, the Chamber has worked to promote a healthy and vibrant economy while protecting and advancing the interests of our members and the community as a whole. The Chamber works in conjunction with citizens, businesses, educational and governmental partners to provide a positive business environment and improve the quality of life in Northwest Arkansas.
The Chamber has taken steps to sharpen the focus of our activities based on the needs of our unique business community. We are developing new programs and improving existing ones in an effort to increase the value of the time you spend involved in Chamber activities. You will see these changes in March when we publish our “2013 Program of Work,” which details our new programs and services.
In pursuit of our goal to bring in new members and continue to meet the needs of our existing members, we will provide multiple networking opportunities. Members participate in our networking programs in an effort to grow their businesses and in the process improve the overall economic environment of our local communities. Membership is a convenient way to meet new people, locate business opportunities and gain information that is pertinent to your business.
Our success is fueled by not only a dedicated and experienced Chamber staff but by the spirit of volunteerism in our business community and the citizens of the Rogers-Lowell Area. If you are part of the business community in Northwest Arkansas but not engaged in the Chamber, I urge you to join us. If you are a member, I urge you to take advantage of your member benefits and get involved.
Let’s build upon our successes in 2012 and continue to make the Rogers-Lowell Area a great place to live and do business!
2013 Chairman of the Board
