The Chamber Updates

A New Year & Retirement Message From Your Chamber President

The Holidays have past and the New Year is upon us! I want to personally wish each and everyone a happy, healthy holiday season and a new year filled with many reasons to celebration.

When I reflect on the year that has almost passed, I remember with love those we have lost and I rejoice in welcoming the new lives that have come into our community.

As a Chamber we have so much to celebrate! Our membership keeps growing and our events sell out. Our merchant community continues to flourish as one project after another revitalizes the Northwest Corridor. We can be proud of the relationships we have fostered between businesses at our networking events and between our merchants and the communities they serve at our Crab Feast and Taste of the Town. Let us continue in 2020 to become an even more cohesive, supportive and positive force for the Northwest Community.

It has been an honor to serve as your President. I have gotten to know many of you well and formed friendships that will last a lifetime. Thank you for your support and friendship. While I plan to remain an engaged and supportive member of the Northwest Chamber, I am look forward to retiring as of January 1st.
The role of President and CEO will be fulfilled by Emily Winters

For those of you who don’t know Emily, you will soon have a chance to meet her as she travels the community or at our Annual Breakfast on January 29th. Emily Winters is a bright and experienced professional with a contagious enthusiasm for the Northwest Community. In her role as Community Business Development Manager for Barnes & Noble, she successfully accomplished many of the same goals we have for our Chamber. I am confident Emily will be a wonderful addition to our community as well as an innovative leader. I know all of you will extend a warm Northwest Chamber welcome to her.

Until we meet again, I wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.

With Warmth and Gratitude,
-Sally Shapiro-Gould
