DEC 2017 – President’s article by Todd Underwood


This past year it was a delight for me to represent the Redlands Chamber of Commerce as your president. I want to thank the Board of Directors for their advice, guidance, dedication and time. Without their service the Chamber would not survive. A big thank you goes to those who served on our committees. We enjoyed the second annual Dog Jog in November. With all the positive input we have received, I expect this event will continue to grow.

The Government Review Committee did an excellent job of interviewing the 13 candidates for the City Council vacancy.

This year the Board has created a new event to promote our city. The New Year’s Eve Orange Drop! I’m excited to see this inaugural event taking shape. We are grateful for the city’s support and the backing from the downtown businesses. I truly believe that this event will be the beginning of making downtown Redlands the place to be on New Year’s Eve.

As we start the holiday season it is my absolute pleasure to wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2018. Thank you for your membership. Together our voice is heard as we promote local business and address important business issues
