Fort Lee CMC MMFI. Make Me Feel Important. That wa was the message from Patrick Henry, th the talented speaker—er, singer—at the Ch Chamber’s recent Annual Dinner. Whether yo you’re a barista at Starbuck’s or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, you should en envision “MMFI” on the forehead of every cu customer and employee. To paraphrase th the famous Virginia patriot of the same na name, the message of speaker-singer Pa Patrick Henry could also be “Give Me Empathy or Give Me De Death (of a Salesman)!” An underlying theme of Patrick’s was perseverance. For ten years, he lived his dream as a professional songwriter and musician in talent-rich Nashville. To keep up with his “really great” co-performers, he began crafting stories in addition to writing songs. He persevered and, as those at the Annual Dinner can attest, is a really great business speaker-singer-motivator. Calvin Coolidge famously said that “nothing in the world
can take the place of perseverance.” That was true for Patrick, and is true now—in business and in all other areas of life. In my previous President’s Perspective message, I wrote about the parallels between this past Boston Marathon and the Chamber. I said that they were both about perseverance, and urged us to stay the course. Since then, the Boston Marathon invited every runner who was unable to finish the 2013 race due to the bombings, to come back in 2014. The vast majority of those 5,633 runners immediately vowed to return and finish the race. Talk about perseverance. The Boston Marathon takes place on “Patriots’ Day.” Patrick Henry would be proud. This is my last message as your president. I am grateful to all of you for the opportunities that I have had. From what I have seen and learned, I am bullish about business in Hopewell, Prince George, and the entire community. Have a wonderful holiday season, and best wishes for 2014. Stefan Calos, Chamber President

Annual Dinner Committee Breaks Tradition Even though the dinner meeting was held on Thursday, October 10, at the traditional venue: the Lee Club on the Ft. Lee campus, the presentation was something breaking tradition from the usual serious Chamber meeting. It was funny, musical and heart-warming. Interspersing his talk with songs and laugh-out-loud stories, Henry connected with his audience of 277 diverse business leaders, elected officials and community partners during his 30-minute presentation on customer service. “People want to do business with friends - people they like, people they trust,” he said. “We chose this program because every organization needs exceptional customer service,” said committee member Chris Jones of Stay-Over Storage. HCA John Randolph Medical Center CEO Suzanne Jackson and her team sat with Henry during dinner and each received a signed copy of his book, The Pancake Principle. In a recent meeting with Ms. Jackson she complimented the chamber on the program and showed us her notes in the margin of her copy. During networking the chamber featured the opportunity for face time with special guests: Dr. John Thomas and Nancy Gansneder of The Weldon Cooper Center; Dr. Ted Raspiller,
President John Tyler Community College; David Goode representing FOLAR; Chris Dawson, Alex Salas, Milena Salas representing DreamItDoItVirginia Manufacturing Technology Camp; and Brad Wells of The Wells Group and the Beacon Theatre. To highlight the importance of the hospitality sector to our economy the chamber also featured a Stay-Cation Raffle sponsored by Omni Financial, PART, Baymont Inn & Suites, and Virginia Manufacturers Association. Special thanks to event sponsors: EVB, Care Advantage, Prince George Electric Coop, Old Dominion Electric Coop, City of Hopewell Economic Development Authority, John Randolph Medical Center, Rock-Tenn, CFS, Rolls-Royce, Honeywell, Stay-Over Storage, Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA), Columbia Gas of Virginia, Evonik Industries, Strosnider Chevrolet, HMA, Timmons Group, CAPUP, Harlan Construction Co., Inc. Also, special thanks to Hopewell resident David Ellis who donated his expertise and his great sound system; and to our amazing publicist, Polly Elmore of PR Works, LLC who keeps our members and our programs in the news.

Tomorrow’s Workforce Business Teaching Business to the Workforce of Tomorrow – Be a J.O.B.S. Program Instructor
The J.O.B.S. Program (Job Opportunity Basic Skills) needs volunteers from the local community to teach our after school classes. Instructors can be working or retired; we provide the curriculum outline and handouts and you present it to the students. Classes take place between November and March as follows: Tuesdays, 3:15 to 4:30 pm at Hopewell High School; Wednesdays, 3:45 to 5:00 pm at Woodson Middle School (Hopewell); and Wednesdays, 3:00 to 4:15 pm at Clements Junior High (Prince George) The J.O.B.S. Program provides 8th and 9th grade students (14-16 years old) in the City of Hopewell and Prince George County with training in workforce readiness, life skills, character education, and wellness. Students who are selected for the program take classes after school and then participate in an internship the following summer. The curriculum lessons this year include: Appropriate Appearance; Responding to Authority; Responsibility and Time Management; Managing Your Money; Active Listening and Non-Verbal Communication; Verbal Communication and Teamwork; Written Communication – On the Job & Getting the Job; Job and Career Search Strategies; Networking and Volunteering; Employee/Employer Relationship;
Conflict Resolution; STEM Group Problem Solving; and Interviewing Skills. To volunteer or for more information please contact Sharon Jadrnak, J.O.B.S. Program Coordinator, at (804)732-7548 or email@example.com What some of our instructors are saying: Wendy Austin, Director, Southside Community Partners – “Being an instructor for the J.O.B.S. program for the past two years has been a fulfilling and fun experience! It is very rewarding to be part of the moment when a student really understands a concept because you are there as a real-life example. It’s fun because the program staff and teachers are so organized and do all the hard work for you and because kids still “say the darndest things” so I always get a good laugh to brighten my day.” Steve Benham, Executive Director, Hopewell Redevelopment & Housing Authority – “I volunteer as a J.O.B.S. instructor because I like this form of social engagement. Students need an opportunity to interact with business and civic leaders. This provides a very meaningful advantage to those students and tremendous reward to the volunteer instructors.” Emari Hunn, Banking Center Manager II, Bank of America, Hopewell – “I decided to volun-
teer for J.O.B.S. program last year because I think it’s very important to set our next generation up for success. In my personal experience, I’ve learned a lot by trial and error. I’m a firm believer of knowledge is power and I want to be a part of empowering our future generations by helping them be equipped for the “grown up” world. I also LOVE giving back to the community! If I can share with one person by sharing my knowledge or skill, that’s one life I was able to touch. It is absolutely rewarding!” Debbie Lesniak Davis, Community Development Officer, Peoples Advantage Federal Credit Union, Petersburg – “Peoples Advantage Federal Credit Union is pleased to help develop and share a foundation of life skills and experiences with the students of Prince George and Hopewell through the J.O.B.S. program. We have been involved in the program for several years and look forward to a continued partnership with the Hopewell-Prince George Chamber and the schools. It has been a pleasure to work with the students and staff in Prince George and Hopewell. The students are bright, enthusiastic and creative. Many of the skills they learn are beneficial in their everyday lives and will serve them well as they begin their professional careers.”

Summer Recap Heroes at Home The Chamber was a proud sponsor of the Fort Lee Heroes at Home Military Spouse Awards and Spouse Appreciation Luncheon in May. Heroes at Home recognizes the spouses of active duty service members; five winners are chosen for “their strength, extraordinary personal sacrifices, and their selfless commitment” to the community.
Golf OPEN The Hopewell-Prince George Chamber community came together to play in the 12th Annual Golf OPEN President’s Cup Tournament sponsored by Strosnider Chevrolet. Thirty-three teams enjoyed an afternoon on the beautiful riverside golf course at Jordan Point Golf Club on May 17th. Many companies use this tournament to reward hard working teams who have completed projects, shut downs, or years of service. Competing for prizes, entering contests, enjoying great food, and hospitality is one small way to appreciate and celebrate our community and its heroes. Chamber Members also had a special opportunity to reach out to service members on Fort Lee by sponsoring an active-duty military team or individual. Through our 2nd Annual “Sponsor a Hero,” twenty service members were recognized by appreciative, patriotic chamber members who in some cases are veterans themselves. President’s Cup presented to 1st Place Winning Team Canfield, Baer & Heller, LLP: (L-R) Debbie Waddell- Golf Committee Chairperson- BreezIn Associates, L.C.; Hunter Wells, Bob Canfield, Craig Strosnider- Signature Sponsor- Strosnider Chevrolet; Ben Williams, and Jeremy Wells.
Governor’s Bowl For the second year, the HPG Chamber participated in the Governor’s Bowl Food & Fund Drive. Chamber Members donated over 500 lbs. of food this summer! More than 100 Chambers across the Commonwealth and over 60 state government agencies participated in the five week competition that began on Memorial Day and ended on Independence Day. The 2013 competition raised the equivalent of over 400,000 pounds of food to benefit over one million individuals served by Virginia food banks.
