Concord Chamber sets 2020 goals

This year, the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce has three goals in mind:

1. To be the catalyst for business growth, assisting members in any way possible to improve their businesses.
2. To be the convener of leaders and influencers who can make strong connections for local business owners.
3. To be the champion for a stronger business community in the greater Concord area.

If one of your goals is to be more physically fit this year, please connect with one of the many options in Concord. The Big C Athletic Club has been providing results for its members for years. The UFC Gym turns 10 years old in Concord this year and continues to “Train Different” and be a strong fitness provider.

If one of your goals is to start a new business and you are looking for funding, do not hesitate to contact the Opportunity Fund. As one of the largest non-profit lenders to small businesses in the country, they invest in small business owners who do not have access to traditional financial resources.

If one of your goals it to be more involved, keep on the lookout for activities from the chamber’s Young Professionals Network. The vibrant program promotes the growth of professionals in their early 20s to mid-40s by providing them with professional development and networking opportunities in a welcoming setting. The chamber is committed to all of our members, but we recognize the need to be relevant to younger business people. We want to be the catalyst for that group’s success in our community.

I am looking forward to working toward these goals for the chamber and to the exciting opportunities for businesses and the community.

If you are planning to make a change in 2020, look to us as a resource to help guide your journey. I hope to connect with you at one of the chamber’s many functions and events.
