    Happy Holidays

    To our great community members, Happy holidays!

    I’d like to begin by showing my appreciation for your time. Thank you for learning more about the work The Chamber is doing in our community.
    As we enter the holiday season, I think it is important to take the time to just pause…and take in all of the positive things happening in our
    lives and community, and all of the positive and passionate people we are surrounded by.

    Many of you know that my family and I moved here just one year ago, and we have been in
    constant awe of the greatness, opportunity and immense potential of this region. The people
    here are like none we have ever met. People here sincerely care about our communities and
    the future of our region. People here show up when there are problems to solve, questions
    to ask, people to help, events to attend, celebrations to enjoy and so much more. People
    here show up for each other.

    I have also noticed that people and organizations really collaborate here – not just
    with words but with action. Putting the interest of others first and forming partnerships are also
    great values that I have noticed intertwined throughout the region. For example, many of
    you are reading this Bridge magazine for the first time and that is because of a great partnership.
    The team at Spotlight saw the need for more people to know about The Chamber and the
    impact that we have as an organization, and they offered to help us share that message
    and distribute The Bridge with Fargo INC this month. Thank you, for your tremendous
    partnership.

    The Chamber has almost 2,000 member businesses that fuel our organization. I want
    to sincerely thank all of those members, our sponsors, our volunteers and our staff. The
    investment and dedication of your time, expertise and financial resources are what drive
    our organization forward. As I anxiously look forward to 2022, I am excited
    for the future of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Region. We are positioned for growth.
    With major projects beginning and businesses of all sizes and industries thriving, our community
    members and leaders are having crucial conversations and making critical decisions
    on what we need to ensure a vibrant future. Our region is also facing challenges such as a
    massive talent shortage, housing and childcare issues and more, but we are committed to
    working alongside each of you to address these issues.

    The Chamber will continue to take the lead on business growth opportunities, making critical
    connections throughout the community, assisting our businesses with all of the challenges they
    are facing, championing efforts on community development, leading a strong business-minded
    public policy program, inspiring our next generation of leaders to get involved with the
    community, and convening essential thought leaders to move ideas into action.
    If you haven’t gotten involved with us in the past, I hope you consider putting that on your
    list of to-dos for 2022.

    I wish you a very happy and safe holiday season, and I look forward to
    working with you in the new year!

    Sincerely, 
    Shannon Full, President & CEO
