    "I would like to see the Chamber grow its membership by continuing to be innovative, while staying connected to the history of the Chamber and the City of Beavercreek, and continue to be an important link in the economic viability of Beavercreek. To do this, I would like to evaluate, or be a part of an existing process to evaluate, each Chamber benefit and the ROI it provides to its members, while helping research and implement new benefits and initiatives. I would work to ensure new businesses, as well as existing members, understand the critical role a Chamber membership can play in professional growth to support membership recruitment and retention. As a Board member, I would see financial stability and long term sustainability of the organization as my most important responsibility."

    "Small business is the backbone of the economy- federal, state or at the local level. They are the hard working people to support their families, community and taking all the risks. It is not a nine-to-five job- it is a 24 hour job to meet the payroll, face the ups and downs of economy and survive. The Chamber of Commerce is a Very Important conduit to bring them together through networking, promoting their product, providing the necessary guidance - could be financial, technical, marketing and even the product. I would like to see the Chamber arrange  job seminars, bring guest speakers knowledgeable in related fields and invite the members. Seek what they want to hear, or how the Chamber can help.

    Over the past three decades, I have always led with charisma and by example. I am always willing to roll up my shirtsleeves as a team player, when necessary. I approach my board responsibilities seriously and with ethics, conviction, and support of the chamber board and staff.

    "I would like to see increased involvement among newer businesses in the community, especially "solopreneurs" and small business owners. The Chamber has a solid base of members with a long history of involvement but in my experience, we've struggled to embrace newer members. I would like to help reach new members, welcome them, and help them begin to engage."
