Tiffany Ginn, President, SWMCC
2020 was a tough year for many of our businesses, but despite one of the sharpest downturns in our history, experts believe that as more and more citizens receive the COVID-19 vaccine, case levels will decline and economic recovery will soon follow.
I recently came across a quote from Lady Bird Johnson that said, “Where flowers bloom so does hope.” And with spring on the horizon, I have much hope in this season of new beginnings for our chamber, our businesses, our community, our country and our world!
With that said, an exciting new commercial development has been announced for our community. Encompassing over 1,300 acres, South Alabama Logistics Park is the largest master-planned industrial park in the Southeast. It is located at Interstate 10 and Theodore Dawes Road and will feature Class A warehouse, distribution and manufacturing spaces. This project is sure to bring many new jobs to our area!
We are currently at about 70% for membership renewals, but we still need your help to make our goal of 90+% by the end of March. So if you have not yet renewed for 2021, please renew your chamber membership today!
Save the Date! Our Business Expo will take place on Monday May 17th! Don’t Delay and Reserve your booth today! While we had a great gathering last year, we are looking forward to an even better turnout this year!!!
Please make plans to come network and mingle with fellow chamber members by joining us for one of our upcoming March events: Business Mastermind Group will meet on Thursday, March 11th; Coffee with the Chamber is on Tuesday, March 16th; and this month’s business luncheon will be on Wednesday, March 3rd where our guest speaker will be Stephanie White, CEO of the Mobile Area Association of Realtors and The Gulf Coast MLS.
We will also be showing our gratitude to our First Responders on Wednesday, March 31st with our Drive-Thru Appreciation Event. Please contact the Chamber if you would like to volunteer!
Thank you so much for being a member of the Southwest Mobile County Chamber of Commerce. We value your business and your investment!
