As we transition into Spring, we will continue moving further along the road towards attaining our vision of being at the forefront of service to our member businesses and community in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world.
Bounty returns in the spring, and we are all getting fired up throughout Southern California. The Compton community is warming up to spring. I am filled with a spirit of hope for all that we have planned for this year.
Spring has a definite feeling to it; the air somehow changes, people’s mood changes. No winter lasts forever. No spring skips its turn. Spring breathes new life into the world around us. Days begin lasting longer and nights get shorter. Daylight Saving Time, which moves the clock forward starting on March 10, gives us even more light hours to get things done.
We thank Mayor Aja Brown, the honorable members of Compton City Council and city officials for their continued support for the economic development of our region through their work with the Compton Chamber of Commerce.
I am pleased to report that, despite a year of severe economic challenges for our nation, we continue to make steady progress. We have been successful in our efforts to achieve our targeted membership recruitment. Our dedicated board members and staff have made our chamber one of the most active in Southern California with their exemplary work in support of our members, city officials, dignitaries and community. We owe a special debt of gratitude to these fine individuals who helped to build, shape and continue to sustain Compton Chamber of Commerce over the years.
Please join me in congratulating all our colleagues and acknowledging their service and loyalty to the City of Compton.
As you can see, there are so many reasons to be proud and thankful in this special season! I have no doubt that, as we transition into Spring, that we will continue moving further along the road towards attaining our vision of being at the forefront of service to our member businesses and community in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world.
