I believe Cambridge is a great place to live, work, and do business. I am passionate about Cambridge, and I think the business community has a leadership role to play in ensuring our town remains the vibrant place it is today.
WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE FOR CAMBRIDGE CHAMBER?
Success for the Chamber would mean a thriving business community supporting our growing town.
Success would be enabling and supporting a business environment that includes a strong foundation of existing business, ample new opportunities and room for growth.
To achieve this, Chamber needs strong governance, clear strategic direction and well-resourced operations. My drive as President is to ensure these things are in place so that our team can continue moving us toward this vision of success.
