President’s Message

Curtis Polk, President, SWMCC

Curtis Polk

In our personal lives, sometimes we find out that we should have taken the time to have a professional check out and make sure everything is ok no matter how much we convince ourselves that we feel fine. Your business should be the same way. No matter how confident you are that everything is functioning, it is possible that it could be better. With new tax laws and government programs out there designed to help small businesses you could be missing out on opportunities to better your business.

Our chamber family has many partners that specialize in everything from tax preparation to life and business coaching. I took advantage of one of our investment partners advice this year and it has really paid off. I’m not going to throw names out because I’m afraid I will leave someone out. My best advice is to come to our events and discover our diverse variety of partners that we have and let them do their jobs for you.

We have several exciting events coming up that will make our fall exciting including our first annual Sporting Clays Skeet Shoot event in September as well as our third annual Gun Raffle to benefit our TALL program. Most importantly our Annual Business Expo is just around the corner. Mark your calendar to participate in this Business to Business event. You will find you can promote your business while learning to promote the chamber. There are multiple opportunities throughout each month to network, find training for best business practices, give back to the community, become a mentor and more. Join us as we learn to grow together, because there is strength in numbers.
