This month we would like to ask a few questions that will help the chamber board make plans for the future of the chamber. Several chambers have closed in recent months. Los Lunas and Moriarty are two of them. Our East Mountain Chamber has reached a point where we are not sure we can continue. Elections are coming up and the current board will not be renewing their positions. We all feel we would like to support the chamber and a new set of board members however, we will not be running for the existing positions.
We would like to find out what your thoughts are for the following ideas. Please shoot an email to Julie with your preference for 1 of the following:
1. Combine the East Mountain Chamber with another Chamber to help with increased participation.
2. Continue with the existing chamber – and please let us know which board or other volunteer position you are willing to accept. Remember, we will need an entirely new board, President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. A vote to continue will only be accepted if you agree to hold a position on the board.
3. Disband the chamber until such time as the local businesses feel that they would benefit from a chamber and volunteer to set up, organize and run it.
Technology has changed the way consumers buy, and businesses have changed the way they do business because of that. We have to accept those changes and modify how we as a chamber do business.
