May 2017 President’s Message and Bi-Monthly Newsletter

25 May

Spring is here with summer right around the corner.  We at the Chamber wish you all a wonderful sunny profitable summer season.

It is my pleasure to announce that Laura Gadwa is your next Columbia Falls Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director.  Laura is stepping up from her current Member Services position to help us continue to grow our organization. A very special thanks goes to our out-going Executive Director, Stacey Schnebel, for her tireless efforts in building a solid foundation from which our communities can excel.

In the past this chamber has suspended activities in June, July and August, but with our increased activity and continued growth that will change this summer.  We will only suspend General Membership Luncheons for the summer months this year, and we will continue to have Board of Directors meetings, Economic Development Round Tables, and Business After Hours events through the summer.

On May 19th please join us for a Multi-Chamber networking event at the Belton Chalet.  We will have the opportunity to network, collaborate and celebrate with other Chamber members from throughout our diverse communities. The West Glacier Visitors Information Center will have an open house the same evening, giving you the opportunity to see your Chamber dollars at work.

To each and every one of you THANK YOU for investing in the Columbia Falls area business community, through your entrepreneurship, your employment, and your patronage.

Mark L Johnson

President, Board of Directors
