Letter from the Beaver Island Chamber of Commerce President to our members and community.

Greetings. As the Beaver Island Chamber of Commerce President, I wanted to take a moment to share with our members and community what the Chamber board has been working on the last several months and what we are planning for the future as well as an opportunity for us to solicitate ideas and feedback. As many of you may know our Chamber Director is retiring this fall after many productive years of service and as a result we are taking this time to think about what changes would be good for the Chamber and community as we move forward. Questions we are asking ourselves for example are
What is our vision for the Chamber based on our mission Statement?
How do we want the Chamber to look and feel?
How to best interact with visitors and the community?
What should be our short-term and long-term goals?
How to best work with the resources we presently have? (budget)
What opportunities are there for us to pool our resources more effectively with other members and the community?
Understanding the changes in marketing trends. How are people researching new destinations and what type of information do they find most valuable?
The above are just a few of the many questions and topics of discussions we as a board are presently having and will continue to for the foreseeable future. We understand that our current structure of the Chamber has to adjust and adapt to the present and future changes happening in the marketing world. Plus we are a small Chamber with limited resources so we continually need to find creative ways to maximize our members dues as well as continue to develop collaborative relationships with other island organizations to provide a cohesive message for the island.
Early May the Chamber Board plans to host a business after hours event for our members and during that event it would be our goal to discuss the proposed changes for the Chamber and receive feedback regarding those potential changes. Once we have the date secured please try to attend as your suggestions are most valuable to us. If you have any current feedback regarding your thoughts on how the Chamber can best serve you & the community, please feel free to contact me anytime via email or phone. I will definitely share that information with the other board members as we move forward. This is an exciting and challenging time for the Chamber as we evaluate how we need to move forward to be the best Chamber we can be for our members and the community.
So please do not hesitate to share your thoughts with us and we look forward to a bright and prosperous future!

Thank you,
Rachel Teague
Beaver Island Chamber of Commerce President
