The End Of The First Quarter! and the Game is On!
Stan Kosciuszko, President
Monday, March 09 2015 10:08

If this were a football game and we were ending the first quarter, any spectator would have to admit that our team is not only in the lead, but impossible to beat. The amount of events, seminars, mixers, committee meetings, affiliate activities, general information and member information is exhausting. Ours is definitely not a static organization. Our 13th Annual Expo at the Clearview Mall was once again a sell out, with a full compliment of businesses and the amount of attendees clearly indicates that our economy is on the upswing.

The Officers and Board (Varsity) of our Chamber have never been shy when it comes to new and innovative programs and events, and our Leadership Butler County Class and Butler County Young Professionals (Junior Varsity) continue with an impressive array of activities. This year’s Leadership Butler County Class is following in the footprints of the past with their ambitious project for an outdoor classroom at MHY Family Services. Our first and second string is very strong, but we also have a great number of interested players “on the bench” and in the “training camp”. It is through the diligence and involvement of an extremely active Board of Directors, an interested and informed membership, and a positive reputation and position in the community that we consistently have new involved professionals. I continue to be grateful for the interest and involvement exhibited by our “Past Presidents Advisory Council”, proof of how strong our organization remains. Add to these past leaders the Butler County Young Professionals and we have established a competent, well-informed and interested group of team players.
