    From the Director’s Desk

    We are so happy to have summer here, but extremely thankful for a wonderful April at the Chamber and within the community. I want to thank everyone that participated in last month’s Diamond Awards and made it a huge success! Whether you sponsored the event, were nominated, attended the event, or volunteered for us, we want you to know how very much we appreciate our members and the community. Congratulations to all who were nominated in your respective categories and to this year’s award recipients. As I stated that evening, it was an honor and humbling to read about all that so many individuals, organizations and companies are doing to give back to our local and regional communities. Please be sure to read about these deserving winners in our Chamber Foundations magazine that will be coming out in late June.

    We did not slow down after our awards night was over. We are now working on our many summer and fall events and programs. We are gearing up for Leadership Meadville 13, as we have one remaining class for our Leadership Meadville 12 group. Please feel free to join us at the Leadership Meadville 12 Graduation and Celebration on Friday, May 13th at the Country Club. We are now accepting applications for Leadership Meadville 13 and look forward to a new and full class roster once again. This class is one of the Chamber’s greatest assets that develops leadership skills in people of all ages and from a variety of business sectors. We are about building relationships, and this is the prime example of this while also learning about leadership and all that Crawford County has to offer.

    Other events and programs we are working on include our Women’s Golf Outing that will be held on Tuesday, July 12th at Whispering Pines Golf Course, our Christmas in July celebration on July 27th at the Iroquois Boating & Fishing Club, Thunder in the City that will be held on Saturday, August 6th, the Fall Golf Outing to be held on Wednesday, August 31st at Mt. Hope Golf Course, the Wine, Brew & Spirits Walk on Saturday, September 10th. Just to name a few things we are currently working on, besides planning educational programs, our women’s, and human resource roundtable discussion groups and more. Eileen Mullen, our Crawford County K-12 Career Education Alliance Program Coordinator is busy planning educational programs and career exploration activities for the thousands of students in Crawford County. She works tirelessly to ensure that our future of tomorrow is educated with information about all that our community has to offer and the variety of careers that are available here in Crawford County.

    Our After-hours events are booked through this year and into 2023, so please contact us if you want to hold one next year to be added to our list of hosts. This is a way to bring business and community members to your place of business and showcase your company, while in a relaxed atmosphere enjoying time together.

    I hope that things are going well at your workplace. I would love to have a one-on-one meeting with you if we have not scheduled one lately. Please feel free to call the office to schedule this soon if you have time.

    Later this month, the Chamber will be closed like many of your offices in observance of Memorial Day. Many of us will be planting flowers this month, seeing children playing summer sports activities, golfing in leagues, cooking out, boating, kayaking, fishing & more. Whatever you are doing, we must remember to always be kind and be thankful for each day, but especially on that Memorial Day weekend. 

    Sincerely,

    Christa
