MESSAGE FROM CEO DEBBIE JONES
COMMITTEE & COUNCIL MEETINGS*
For those who may not know me, it is my
pleasure to introduce myself as the Prince
William Chamber’s President & CEO. To some
of the members I am very familiar, while others
may wonder how this changes things. I’d like to
begin by saying that the success of this
Chamber and its individual members is of
utmost importance to me. In April I celebrated
24 years working for the Chambers in Prince
William. I am proud of the relationships I have
formed and the businesses I have worked with,
many of whom have grown to become leaders. Above all, I believe the
Chamber is an organization that exists to serve its members. That’s why
my door is always open to any member who wants to share their ideas for
how this Chamber can make a greater impact.
Committees and Councils offer focused networking as you work alongside business
professionals with common interests. They bring together members with a shared industry
or business challenge by identifying trends within their field and through Council-specific
programming. Please note that to confirm meeting dates and locations, please visit our
online calendar or email Suzanne Lewis, [email protected] for more information.
Whether you own/work in a small or large business, some business issues
remain the same. That commonality is what brings businesses together
and it is the reason why the Chamber is often called a “voice” for business.
My staff and I work hard to create a culture that invites business people to
keep coming back. I hope to see a lot of new faces at our upcoming
events, and I invite you all to introduce yourselves to me. Growing the
Chamber is great. Having an engaged membership is even better. Please
let us know how we can meet the needs of your business.
