WELCOME TO THE PRC! Message from President
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year!
On behalf of the Pontiac Regional Chamber Board of Directors, I’d like to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful time over the holidays and a peaceful and happy new year!
This has been another positive year at the Pontiac Regional Chamber (PRC) - so many of you continue to say YES to the PRC. As a result, we brought over 18,000 people to our area through community and member events through your support.
We continue to focus on Communication, Cooperation, Coordination, and Collaboration! Throughout the year, we have strengthened our relationships within our community, have attracted new members, welcomed new businesses, hosted ribbon cuttings, and even brought a Circus to town.
We continue to expand our collaborative efforts with the Oakland County Sheriff Office and participated in their Angel’s Night Fun Fest! We also collaborated with five (5) other Chambers of Commerce to host our annual Business Success Conference.
We’re attracting new volunteers such as
Jeff Fohey from the Pontiac SUN TimeBank! Through his tremendous community building experience, vision and connections, he has attracted volunteers to be at the chamber office on a regular basis. It’s a pleasure working directly with him and Kim Hodge, Executive Director of the Pontiac SUN TimeBank.
The PRC is excited to see its City move forward too. The City of Pontiac continues to rebound and below is just a sample of what is happening:
Welcomed New Deputy Mayor
Welcomed New Oakland County Sheriff Office Pontiac Substation Captain
MI Concourse hosted their first phase walk-thru recently. It’s the premiere car enthusiast center in North America - right on Woodward Avenue
Attracted U-Pull and Save, Forman Mills, Kabobji Mediterranean Grill and more
Our success happens because of the strategic focus and support of my Board of Directors, our members, interns, contractors, and volunteers. Our mission is to help your business grow. We believe your success is in our connections! We invite you to get involved with the PRC in 2016 - It’s a great place to network, strengthen your business skills, and learn something new.
It’s a NEW Year &
a NEW Beginning for the PRC!
I want to personally take a moment and THANK my Board of Directors, members, interns, independent contractors, and volunteers for your ongoing support as I say goodbye as the President of the Pontiac Regional Chamber to pursue opportunities in my marketing company. The past seven years have been a challenge as we all navigated the Global Economic Crisis together and an opportunity for growth. I’ve appreciated the time working with all of you to help promote the positive developments in Pontiac.
As the PRC transitions into 2016, feel free to call and welcome Damany Head the PRC’s new Board of Directors Chairman and Tracy Sheehan-First Vice President at (248) 335-9600.
I wish each and every one of you a great holiday season and New Year!
