am honored and privileged to accept the position of Manteca
Chamber of Commerce President for a second year in a row. I am
humbled by your faith and trust.
am committed to fulfilling the mission we have set for ourselves
to provide our members with business support and education to help
them succeed and to continuously promote Manteca’s quality of
life. As your Chamber President, I will work with you to achieve
our collective vision of success. With the help and support of
this dedicated board of directors, and of course our wonderful
Executive Director, Debby Moorhead, I will continue to work very
hard to ensure that the Manteca business community, through its
Chamber, has the resources and tools it needs to compete
effectively and successfully, and to thrive.
next year will be exciting as we seek to expand the Chamber’s
role. We are dedicated to aggressively advertise businesses and
their services via the Chamber’s website, social media,
e-newsletters, e-coupons, newspaper ads and other marketing
publications. We will promote and strengthen businesses via
educational seminars, social and business mixers, networking
events, and other growth-oriented activities; and we will continue
supporting and connecting with community organizations and their
is fortunate to have an amazing community where people and
businesses alike go out of their way to support one another. Just
take a look at our Police and Fire Departments. They attend all
Chamber functions, even the weekly Chamber Coffees, not to promote
themselves but because they believe in supporting the community.
How lucky are we to live or do business in a town where this is
