FEB 2018 – President’s article by Scott Welsh

125 years! The Redlands Chamber of Commerce celebrates 125 years of serving the Redlands business community and providing a platform for businesses and non-profits alike.  Whereas businesses and the community have changed dramatically since 1893, one thing remains the same: the Chamber’s commitment to connecting business managers and owners in a way that no other networking group can do.

With over 600 members, the Redlands Chamber has quite a few more members than 1893, but we remain a local first-name basis group of committed individuals to help make your business successful. Look over the list of member businesses, and you will learn that you are in great company!   The Chamber has so many opportunities to learn and help  grow your corner of the market.

Make February your month to commit to one of the fantastic networking and sponsorship opportunities available to put your business in front. Rise N Shine happens every first Friday of the month at 7:00 am.  Fill your cup with updates from all sides of the city and meet new businesses owners who are excited to get up early and get their business moving. Also, Business to Business networking every fourth Tuesday of the month hosts 40+ businesses you can learn from and network with.

Lee Iacocca once remarked “There are three kinds of people in the world, those who make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder: what just happened??” Here’s to making it happen in 2018!
