A Message From the President Thank you so much for your continued support of the Carbon Valley Chamber of Commerce! As a membership driven organization, it would be impossible to carry out our mission without your help! Iâ€™m pleased to share some of the exciting things happening with the Chamber. In 2015 we were fortunate to welcome a new executive director who many of you already know and respect, Julia Davis. After a successful career in banking, Julia made the decision to devote herself full-time to helping businesses in the Carbon Valley thrive. She joins our outstanding executive assistant, Judy Zewe, who is celebrating the start of her 3rd full year with the chamber. As the Carbon Valley matures, so does our Chamber! We refreshed our logo and marketing materials and are close to releasing an upgraded website. Besides looking more modern, our new website will provide added features for our members to enjoy and deploy to serve their growing businesses. Our top priority is to see businesses prosper and we are moving in an excellent direction along this line. Why is this so important? It has been proven time and time again that flourishing businesses are the backbone of strong communities. Successful businesses hire more people, pay their employees more, and give more to local charities. This is why your support is so important! Good things are happening at the Chamber and you make them possible! Thank you again for contributing to the Carbon Valley Chamber and cheers to a fantastic 2016! Chris Combs, Board President
