Welcome to the Dearborn County Chamber of Commerce website, and to our community. It is my honor and pleasure to serve as the 2021 Chairman of the Dearborn County Board of Directors. The board consists of many existing business leaders within the community whom I have had the pleasure of working alongside for the past 10 years. I also look forward to meeting new and future leaders of Dearborn County, as we hopefully convert to a post-covid world and begin having events again in person.
Last year was certainly a unique year for the world, as well as our community, and our Chamber of Commerce handled the changes with as much integrity and grace as I think was possible. It included making some very difficult decisions, especially early in 2020. The Chamber still had an excellent year, despite the difficulties, and that success is thanks to its members and the leadership of the President and CEO, Eric Kranz, and the former Chairman of the Board, Mark Graver. Kudos to both of them for weathering an unprecedented year.
In 2021 the Chamber will continue to focus on our mission to promote, inform, educate and assist members to improve and grow their businesses. To accomplish this, we are teaming up with One Dearborn in a new business retention program using a template provided by Purdue University. In addition, we are anxious to get back to some in person events, and we ask that you please go ahead and mark your calendars for our Annual Golf Outing which will be taking place on September 10.
If you are not a member of the Dearborn County Chamber of Commerce, please join us today. If you are a member, we thank you for your continued support, especially over the last year, and challenge you to make the most of your membership by participating in the many Chamber events and programs, whether in person or virtual. These events are designed to provide unparalleled opportunities to network and build partnerships within the community. By working together as Chamber members, we enhance the local business environment and ensure Dearborn County is the best in all of Indiana to work and play!
