A Note to Our Partners
There are many aspects of your business that you can control –things such as product innovation and quality, customer service, internal processes and procedures, your company’s brand and marketing messaging and who you hire to join your team. There are aspects of business, however, that are outside of your control, yet directly impact your ability to grow, be competitive and thrive. Critical business
success factors that reside in this space are typically your greatest concerns; the things that keep you up at night.They are the critical community issues that are impacting your ability to do business efficiently and effectively. They often inhibit your growth and impact your ability to maximize your profit. This space between what you can and can’t control is the space that your Chamber occupies. What are the most critical issues impacting business in Catawba County? Furthermore, which issues are we leading or playing a significant role in addressing? Which issues should we be leading and/or exerting more influence? What issues should we be actively engaged to address, yet not lead? Finally, which issues are important to us, but other partners are best equipped to address? I asked these questions during our Strategic Leadership Retreat with a room filled with our Board leadership, Chamber Shareholders
and Investors and other strategic partners. Your Chamber pursues value and relevance every day. It’s our priority to ask the right questions to uncover your needs and pain points, to listen and then to act. It’s only because of your continued investment, engagement and leadership that we can continue to fund and successfully execute critical economic & community development initiatives that get things done on behalf of business. Thank you for your commitment to YOUR Chamber. On behalf of our team, we humbly thank you for allowing us the honor and privilege to work alongside of you and for you every day.
