New networking opportunities, events, advocacy, and more!

Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to February! This month, I have the pleasure of introducing two members to our Board of Directors!

Clinton Farnsworth is a Business Banking Specialist at Wells Fargo. A couple fun facts about Clinton are that he speaks fluent Spanish and that his favorite place to have lived was in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

Stephanie Kidder is a Financial Services Agent for New York Life Insurance Company. She just recently had the opportunity to go to the Bahamas. Apparently the Caribbean is the way to go!

We, the Board, look forward to putting them to work on your behalf. Don't be surprised if you get a call from them some day!

We initiated two new agenda items at our January Breakfast meeting: the Advocacy moment and the Chamber's Coffee Club.

In the Advocacy moment, we spend a few minutes going over legislation or upcoming events that could effect your business or the wider GLBT community. There are efforts afoot to undermine the legislative rights of the GLBT community and it is our responsibility to keep you informed. We will also routinely post these subjects on our Facebook page for your information.

The Chamber Coffee Club is a one-on-one networking opportunity. (We don't actually have an official name but are working on one.) We will have a box at the Chamber breakfast for you to put your business card in. We will then match businesses together and let you know who  your "date" is! Then it's up to you to arrange to meet that person in order to get to know them and their business better. The more you know someone personally, the more likely you will want to refer them business, and the more likely they will be to refer business to you.

In addition, February 4th will be our Chamber day to help Habitat for Humanity with their Rainbow Build. Tucson was the first city in the United States to ever create a Rainbow Build and now other cities have copied this amazing build! You do not have to have any special construction skills. Just a real willingness to come and help and have fun for a worthy cause. You can sign up on our website. I would love to see all of you there!
