Scott on the Business Awards

Hello Chamber Members.

 

I haven’t done a blog in a while and I figured after my favourite Chamber Night of the year it was time…What an exceptional night last night at the Chamber’s Annual Business Awards..It really can be summed up by a comment made from one of our sponsors after the event.

 

“That event never ceases to amaze me, as it truly outlines what a great community we live and work in”.

 

This is such a true comment and I would like to thank all the Sponsors, winners, nominees and attendees for giving up there night to celebrate what a truly great community we live and work in. This is the first year we did the pre-reception and it was a huge success networking at its finest hour.

 

I would like to say a special congratulations to Julie at Big Brothers Big Sisters on her win for the Keith Taylor Memorial award…this one is special  one for me for several reasons including at the time of Keith’s passing I was President of the organization and to see Julie as one of Keith’s employees at that time and to see how she has taken the organization to heights.  I know Keith would be so proud of you Julie as I am.  Well done Julie!!

 

With spring coming soon (I hope)…it’s time to dust off the networking shoes and get out there….The last couple of weeks I have been out and about connecting with members and it has been great to sit down with so many great people and leaders in this community.

 

Thanks to the many new Chamber members we have had over the last while including Silver Compass Inc, Courtland Esso, JC’s Mechanical, Propertyguys.com (welcome back Mike), Dundee Recycling, Rea Elektronik Canada Inc, Diversco Supply, Mindful Life Studio, Hospice of Waterloo Region, A Life’s Transition, Concord Production Services, Little Electric, Preston Figure Skating Club, Faith FM 94.3, Silo Wireless, Sponagle and Sons, Airbonne- Kelly Hall, Clout Industries,  Watson Mechanical, Hydronic Heating, Simply Gloves,Boehmers, Waterloo Coin Society, Royal Canada Forward Inc, Part Source, Garston Motors.

Members Are Getting Engaged!

Hello Chamber Members!!....Although it’s getting cold outside things are still heating up here at the Chamber.  On November 27th we hosted a round table discussion with 24 New Chamber Members sponsored by Cowan Insurance Group.    It was great to hear their individual stories, which they shared amongst each other and it was rewarding for us at the Chamber to see business being done.  “People Do Business with People They Know”.  Our goal is to try and bring people together through networking, providing our members with opportunity to make those connections.

 

We are looking forward to another busy week ahead with my favourite Breakfast of the year, the Annual Mayors Breakfast next Wednesday at the Galt Country Club. Thanks again to our breakfast sponsors Andrew Johnson of Sun Life and Graham Mathew. 

 

Our inaugural year for the Not-for-Profit Series wraps ups with month and we were pleased that all 6 sessions were widely attended by our members in the not-for-profit sector. The new initiative was designed to help local non-profits learn, grow, and connect.   All sessions were made available complimentary to our members, sponsored by Graham Mathew.

 

It’s beginning to feel like Christmas at the Chamber office as we get ready to host the Christmas Business After Hours.  We hope that you will mark December 9th on your calendar and join us!  Zoup and Strodes Meat & Deli will be providing the munchies this year and you will need to join me in the Scotiabank Photo Booth! It is also great opportunity to get reacquainted with the Chamber office.

 

The Business Development department will be soon selling two fantastic publications; The Relocation Guide is a very targeted magazine sent to people who are looking at relocating to our City and a brand new publication that will contain all the Chamber University online courses, which will be sent to 45,000 homes in Cambridge.  If you are

interested in promoting your business in one or both publications, touch base with Brandi or I at 519.622.2221.

 

We welcome the following members that join us in the past couple of weeks:  My Walk In Closet, Kids Alive international, Valet Car Wash, Bloomingdale Auto Sales and Leasing, Canada Heavy Equipment College, Your Advantage Insurance and Fuzion Fitness.   We hope that you will also welcome them.

 

Remember to support Chamber Members First!

 

Hope to see everyone sooner than later!!
