January 2019

Happy New Year!

As we close the book on 2018, I look back with gratitude. Thank you for your warm welcome as I took over the reins. It was both a professionally and personally rewarding year. I am grateful for all the new friendships and colleagues and look forward to the great things that are sure to come.

2019 is already shaping up to be full of opportunities to grow, learn and network. A complete calendar of events for the year is under construction and will be released in the coming weeks. Calendars will also be available on February 1st at the Groundhog Day breakfast. Click hereto reserve your tickets today! This annual event, sponsored by McDonald’s of Fayette County, will feature two dynamic speakers and of course, a celebrity groundhog!

March will find us back at the Mahan Building as we welcome Human Resource Law attorneys from the Ohio Chamber of Commerce. This lunch time event will be centered around HR law in the State of Ohio. A presentation followed by a Q&A period will prove to be worthwhile for any employer and we certainly hope you will join us. Business After Hours, Toast to Summer, Night at the Races, the list goes on-there are many ways to be involved. We certainly hope you will make the most of your membership and join us as we strive to strengthen and grow Fayette County together.

We are also welcoming the new year with a new face! Jennifer Sigman-Main will be assisting in the office on a part time basis. A graduate of Miami Trace High School, Jennifer is happy to be promoting the county in which she was raised. Stop in, introduce yourself and welcome Jennifer!

As we step in to a new year, know that my door is always open. If there is a program you would like to see us provide or an issue you find yourself needing assistance with, please call. Our mission and my daily goal is to advance the civic, economic and social welfare of the people of Fayette County. I am grateful to each and every member – thank you for your support!

Here is to a prosperous 2019!

Welcome, Jennifer!
