    A vision for a prosperous new year

    It’s been a whirlwind first month here in my new position as Chamber CEO and president. My first weeks have provided a chance for me to take it all in. From meetings with the staff, board, external stakeholders, members and community leaders, this active listening has helped me realize the great strength and assets that exist in Fargo Moorhead West Fargo. I am also full of ideas and inspiration as I see the challenges and opportunities of this region.

    Grit, grace, and gratitude: A note from your new Board Chair

    Grit, grace and gratitude have been the most common words in my vocabulary over the past 12 months, and I believe they will be essential pillars of guidance for us all as we continue to move into the next 12 months.

    Memorable moments from this past year

    As our Chamber heads into the final month of our current fiscal year, it brings a time of reflection. There’s no doubt it: This was a tough year for many of us. Aside from the challenges we all faced as a nation and world, our community lost a dear leader in Craig Whitney. I am so grateful for all Craig taught us, and the legacy he left behind. But no matter how hard things were, there were still plenty of bright spots and reasons to celebrate.

    Leadership shines in our community

    Resilience has been a key theme in our region, especially as we have navigated recent challenges. I am continually humbled and proud of how many people step up to lead our community forward, even in the face of barriers, controversy and uncertain times. It’s fitting that this month we unveil our Chamber’s 2020 Legacy Leader recipient.

    Re: Open for Business

    Through the past few months, our community has displayed its resilience and resourcefulness as we’ve navigated the current crisis. As businesses and the economy are beginning to reopen, we have updated our website and social media pages with new tips and resources to help businesses figure out what they need to do in this ever-changing environment. While we don’t know exactly what the future holds, we are hopeful, and will continue to represent and serve you.

    Getting through this together

    As we enter this new month of May, we’re continuing to adapt to life in the face of global pandemic. We’re not through the woods yet, but we do know a little more than we did before. While health information and legislation change almost daily, one thing is constant: our people.

    Important updates and information regarding COVID-19 and impacted businesses

    COVID-19 continues to alter the way we live and do business on literally a minute-to-minute basis. What this means for our families, our friends, and our co-workers is still being sorted out, of course, and will be for weeks or months to come. What we do know for sure is that things will be different once we get past this crisis. And, we will get past it.
