Hello Chamber members,

Itís been an amazingly busy year for us here at the Portsmouth Area Chamber of Commerce, thanks to our members of course! Eleven new members just this month.

I want to remind everyone that membership renewals will be going out in mid-November. Be sure and get yours in early. Names of all renewed members will be printed in the January/February newsletter.

Our members have graciously hosted 12 Business After Hours this year. If youíre interested in hosting an after hours event, give us a call at the office. There are only two openings for 2012. Special thanks to American Savings Bank, Party Connection, Scioto Ribber, Ron LeMaster Insurance, Glockner Honda/Toyota and Shawnee State University for hosting the past few months. Weíve had great attendance and are seeing many new, active members.

We have begun a new Leadership Portsmouth class with 20 participants representing several of our members. We have also started working with a new Student Chamber group. This group consists of high school seniors throughout the county. We coordinate activities for the group with the Community Action Organization and model their sessions after the Leadership Portsmouth program. Both groups are awesome to work with and our goal is to expose them to many new things in Scioto County.

The Chamberís annual golf scramble at the Elks Country Club was a huge success again this year. We had 22 teams - thatís up a few from last year. We couldnít have asked for better weather and we had a great group of golfers. It was a perfect day!

There was also a great turnout for the recent rededication of the Branch Rickey Mural (see picture below). Some maintenance issues made is necessary to repaint the mural.

You should have already received your 2011 membership renewal invoice. The membership dues are based on the number of employees at your business. If this has changed, please call our office so we can update your information and invoice you accordingly. We appreciate your continued support. Be sure and get your membership in early. All members renewing will be listed in the next newsletter. We have a newly designed membership plaque that youíll receive upon renewal. Display it proudly.

Hope to see you soon at a Chamber of Commerce event.
