a word from the director...

a word from the director... “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead "There is nothing permanent except change." - Heraclitus I've been thinking about change lately. More so than normal, which in itself is a lot since change is a constant. Maybe its the leaves turning that has spurred this intense consideration of change. Whatever the cause, I keep returning to the fact that I am a person who welcomes change. I firmly believe that standing still does no one any amount of good and welcoming change, even when painful, will facilitate progress. It is also my firm belief that the Chamber is changing and people are taking notice. I want to take this opportunity to thank our members and the community for bearing with us as we gradually make changes that will enable us to better serve everyone. The Chamber is a voice for its members but don't forget that we can't speak for you unless you speak to us first. We welcome your thoughts and ideas. Don't hesitate to talk with one of our board members or to stop by the office to visit with me. Improvement can only come by working together and the time to get started is now. -Ashley
