Letter from the Director

Happy New Year Everyone! Already there have been so many puns created about this year, 2020. While we at the Chamber have a vision, please help us make it (20/20). We would value your input. Feel free to drop by the office, call or email us with ideas, suggestions, or just to connect. As always, check out our website for upcoming events and news!

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” – Neil Gaiman
