President’s Message – April 2015
Dear Business Colleagues and Neighbors,
“Don’t Need A Watch To Waste Your Time”
– John Lennon, Whatever Gets You Through The Night
Welcome Spring! Here’s hoping that not only the crocus are emerging from hibernation, but your customers are as well. What a winter… A 2015 winter memory I’d like to forget was sitting on the LIE, for 5 hours awaiting roadside assistance to replace a tire that fell victim to a pothole. The rim as well…… Anyway
There’s no wasting time at the Chamber. We are busy, pumped up and ready to hit the ground running as we enter our busy spring/summer season. Chamber members will be receiving our annual appeal package seeking sponsorships to ease the financial burden of Chamber run events. Won’t you please consider being a sponsor? It’s good business and good for your community.
Is your business a Chamber member? If not, what are you waiting for? Visit the Chamber website at www.RonkonkomaChamber.com where you will see the list of Chamber membership benefits. And if you’re still not sure, please attend a Chamber meeting as our guest. When you experience the camaraderie among the members you’ll be convinced you want to be part of it. No “cliques”, no “one per industry” rules, just businesses meeting to share their knowledge, strengths and successes and at the same time getting acquainted with our community.
Let’s Support Each Other! – Local businesses are often asked for donations to support our local sports teams and causes. As we support you, we ask that you support your local businesses. Ronkonkoma businesses have everything you need for your yard and home, dining, health & wellness, insurance, real estate, printing, banking, to name a few. Go to the Chamber website www.RonkonkomaChamber.com click on members to find the type of business you are looking for and support a Chamber member. It’s good for everyone!
Some say the economy is improving… others say no way. Challenges continue… unemployment, housing market, recent world events that affect our economy. Let’s do what we can to keep Ronkonkoma a vibrant community — Together We Can Build A Great Future.
Until next month….
President, Ronkonkoma Chamber of Commerce
