Dear Members of Real Chamber Of Commerce (RCC),

Once again, it’s the time of the year when we gather around the table with our families and pause to reflect on that which we are thankful. This year, in addition to family and friends, I am thankful for the privilege to serve our members as RCC’s chief executive officer. It’s an honor to work with dedicated and supportive members.

As we enter the second year of our strategic plan, we welcome your ideas and comments to enhance RCC’s ability to meet the needs of businesses now, and in the future. While we have made great strides forward, there is still much work to be done—but when we come together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.

This week’s Thanksgiving holiday offers a special opportunity to reflect on our many blessings and to be grateful for the gifts we have received. We are mindful of those less fortunate who are struggling in our country and our world. Thanksgiving is an invitation to rededicate ourselves in our own special way that could make a difference to the most vulnerable members of our communities.

On this day, set aside for giving thanks, we express our gratitude to the men and women and their families who selflessly serve to protect our country and the American way of life. As we come close to the end of 2017, the Real Chamber of Commerce Board and Staff would like to wish all of our members a happy Thanksgiving holiday. We are thankful for our members. Without you, there would be no RCC. We hope to have you with us in 2018.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.
