President’s Message

Tiffany Ginn, President, SWMCC

Tiffany GinnThe weather is hot and so are the recent announcements for our community! From the 1,300-acre South Alabama Logistics Park (SALP) to additional investments at Rangeline Crossing, opportunities abound and the best way to remain informed is to be involved with our Chamber.

One of our biggest annual events, Kid’s Day, will be held on Saturday, July 31st. It will be a drive-thru event again this year, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have some fun & interactive activities for the kids. Each child will receive a book bag filled with school supplies. We still need volunteers and donations, so please contact our Executive Director, Tina Poiroux, to see how you can participate. One of the most impactful ways you can help us, is by donating school supplies or gift cards for us to purchase supplies in bulk. We will be accepting donations until July 19th. It takes a lot of help from the community to make this event successful and we are counting on you!

It was such a pleasure hosting five of our non-profit community organizations during our 5 on 5 Summit at last month’s Business Luncheon! These organizations do so much for our community with so little, and it was inspiring to see how each of them shifted gears during the pandemic. If you are interested in learning more about these organizations and the work they do, our office will be glad to assist you in making these connections.

Be sure to attend our next Business Luncheon on July 7th, where we will welcome USA’s Head Football Coach, Kane Wommack. Every month, attendance at our luncheons increases, so PLEASE RSVP today to reserve your seat!!! Our next Business Mastermind session will meet on Thursday July 8th, and Coffee with The Chamber will be on Tuesday, July 20th. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events very soon!

“The difference between Motivation and Inspiration is motivation must constantly be injected. Inspiration lasts a lifetime.” ~Jeffrey Gitomer.

It is vital to Motivate others, especially those we lead and have influence upon. But motivation is a force that pulls you to do something. Inspiration, on the other hand, touches you on the inside and connects you to a state of being more excited, more productive, and more purposeful. Therefore, to be able to inspire others is to ignite them to want to reach higher and achieve more than ever imagined. Be an inspiration to someone today!
