2012-2013 Chino Chamber of Commerce Chairman

As I hit the term limits for a board member of the Chino Valley Area Chamber of Commerce, I look back with fondness and gratitude toward the organization, members and to my fellow members of the board. It has been an honor to serve our community and to also grow myself as an individual. The chamber board is made up of a group of remarkable individuals who have taught me many things and sacrificed many, many hours of their personal time for our community. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

The chamber board is first and foremost a team of leaders that work extremely hard leading our organization and supporting our community, making both a better place for all. 2012-2013 was a challenging year with having to hire a new director and staff and rewriting the organization's by-laws, policies and procedures. As chairman during that time, I was very fortunate in that I had help from past chair Dr. Leonda Armstrong from Circle L Animal Hospital and chair-elect Robin Christie from Granite Mountain Home Care and Hospice. Both have been instrumental members of the team and, just as important, great friends to me. There is one other person I'd like to thank for allowing me the time away from our business and for her huge support and help as I fulfilled my board duties: my business partner and sister, Wendy McManigal.

I have always recommended getting involved with the chamber and its activities to anyone who has asked how to get the most out of their chamber membership. Working on event and board committees side by side with other members has built many great relationships, both business and personal. I plan to stay very involved with this organization that is so important to the community, and I recommend you all do the same.

See you at the next event/luncheon/mixer/meeting/etc.!
