a letter from Diane Forte, incoming chair of the board As we embark on 2012 it is natural to look for change. As we all know in business (and life) nothing ever stays the same, but isn’t that what makes our stories so interesting? Let’s make this year, this chapter of our lives, an opportunity for growth in our businesses and within ourselves.

as a result, we are able to continue on and grow stronger.

Over the past few years, the story of our economy has served up some challenges and tried to change our happy endings. There have been hurdles to jump, detours to avoid and road blocks that made us stop and think. However, through it all, we have learned to count on each other and to use the resources around us, and

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the 2012 Chair of the Board. Myself, along with the Board of Directors, chamber staff, committee chairs and countless volunteers, are all committed to help create opportunities to help your business to grow.

The Lee’s Summit Chamber is a great resource and has played a big role in my story, and I invite you to let it do the same for your business. Our Chamber continues to adapt and implement new programs to better serve our members. There are countless opportunities for you to market your business and build relationships with all types of community-minded individuals like yourself. The Chamber even works on your behalf if you are unable to attend events through marketing, governmental relations and much more.

Payroll Change Notice Missouri is one of 20 states which has an outstanding loan due to the Federal Government dating back to at least 2009. Because of this, Missouri businesses will be subject to a .3 percent tax impound per employee by the end of this year. Paycor Payroll Services will be handling the payment for its clients, however, if you’re using an off-the-shelf software to handle your payroll, this is a matter that will require your attention. Businesses who fail to comply will be subject to penalties on top of the tax owed.

B Positively Promoting U Shirley Boyer

Strikerz Entertainment Center

Additionally, earlier this year, there was a reduction in FUTA reimbursement for all businesses. This too needs to be addressed and adjusted accordingly. Unless you have done something to address this, chances, are the program you’re using may not have made the adjustment. For more information please be sure to speak with your CPA or payroll specialist.
