From the desk of Pete Strange
Today with Oktoberfest Zinzinnati fast approaching, I end my term as interim president of your Chamber of Commerce. First I thank all of you who have reached out to support me during my service; the power of the Chamber is truly drawn from its members and partners. Second, I share what I have learned in nine weeks: Your Chamber is strong, it is a dynamic organization doing good work on behalf of 4000 business members. More important, your Chamber is positioned to grow and evolve to meet your changing needs.
Finally, I welcome and thank Jill Meyer who assumes the CEO role this week. Jill is the right leader, and this is the right time, for the Chamber to move to the next level of service to our business community. With your support and engagement, together we will move our region from good to great.
