    Stephen Brown, Director of Sales and Marketing, Hilton Garden Inn Beavercreek

    1. I have had some experience with a few board member positions with one of them being a committee through work. "We Care Committee" through the Homewood Suites was created to tie in the hotel and our employees with the surrounding community. I was elected by my peers to be the President and we ran multiple charity drives throughout the year.
      Also have had the pleasure of sitting in on board meetings for Creek Classic Soccer Tournament. We went over the changes in policies and rules for Ohio South Youth Soccer Association and how that would affect the tournament. Rules like the new concussion law that would directly affect the tournament.
      My interest in being a board member for the chamber is the same reason I take advantage of being a chamber member. I am a strong believer in supporting local businesses in our own backyard and keeping the tax dollars in our community when and where we can. I was raised in Beavercreek and I truly believe that I have the advantages that I have now because I grew up in such a wonderful community. Being able to be a part of something that directly affects the success of this community is a priceless opportunity that I would love to take full advantage of.
      I also very much look forward to learning from our very experience existing board members and coming new members. I look forward to bettering my leadership skills so that I can become better for my Beavercreek Community. "You must be the change you want to see in the world." Gandhi
    2. I currently serve on the new committee "Greene Leads" through the Beavercreek Chamber and area Greene County Chambers. This has already been such a greeat experience working with local laders from all around. The opportunity to start at the foundation of the committee has brought a great deal of ownership and responsibility as well. Working as a team and building the structure of how the committee will look and run for future committee members has by far been the best board/committee experience I have gained so far.
    3. I have years of experience with the Beavercreek Chamber and the many functions affiliated with it. Though I have never held a position with the chamber, I always look forward to fully supporting their efforts in closing the gap between business owners and/or operators. I truly feel that the chamber is the glue that keeps local businesses and its community moving forward together. Beavercreek has always been home to me and I look forward to continuing to be a contribution to its success. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to the next process in my journey to be considered a Beavercreek Chamber Board Member.

    Jerry Butts, Wealth Management Advisor, LPL Financial

    1. As a current board member, I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve in different capacities, including the finance committee. Through this experience, I have seen tremendous growth within the chamber, and would still like to add to the growth in the coming years. As a small business owner, I feel a great sense of responsibility that we have a chamber that represents our members and the community with being objective in the decisions that we make as board members, as well as being good stewards of the dues that are received by the chamber. I believe my commitment to this and past experience within the chamber will keep adding value if re-elected.

    Dianna Cordle, Director of Sales, Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairborn

    1. Throughout my career I feel it has been very important to support my community. My involvement with local groups and organization has spanned over 20 years. I have assisted with the planning of events from military reunion groups, local charities, and the business community. During my daily work, I am constantly focused on promoting the Beavercreek area and the many opportunities offered. My experience in developing connections with individuals and groups visiting Beavercreek continues to promote a healthy growing economy. My strong commitment to Beavercreek and Greene County has developed over my career. As a leader, I have encouraged my team within my company to be involved with Habitat for Humanity, Greene Leads, Michael's House, Greene Giving, Feed the Creek, and the local USO. By giving back and supporting these local organization, I have learned that this provides you with a wealth of knowledge and connections. I have grown my career at the Holiday Inn from catering manager to currently the director of Sales. In this position, I am responsible to generate sales for a 203-room hotel with 10,000 square feet of meeting space, leading a sales team of six daily. The everyday challenges are the most rewarding I have ever experienced in my career. My team reminds me how we can accomplish our goals together and not as an individual or else we stand alone. I look forward to working with the team of the Beavercreek Chamber Board.

    Tom Hamilton, President, Hamilton Enterprises, dba Beavercreek Florist

    1. As owner of Beavercreek Florist for 22 years, it is my belief that the Beavercreek Chamber can continue to be an integral part of helping the community, and businesses in it, succeed. Doing so required commitment on the part of those of us that utilize its services. Volunteering to be on the Board to assist with the direction, function and planning for the Chamber is part duty, part honor.
