Message from the President & CEO
It’s finally beginning to feel like summer, longer days, and warmer weather is upon us. Folks are certainly antsy to get out and take some much-needed vacation. To that end Queens Chamber is excited about the return of our Business Expo 2022.
Due in part to the pandemic we’ve been unable to assemble in-person for one of our largest events since May 2019. That was then, this is now.
The second week of this month all roads lead to Citi Field for day filled with our business community exhibiting their goods and services, educational seminars, Keynote speakers and NY Mets star John Franco who’ll be joining for the afternoon.
It’s all about exposure for our Queens Chamber business owners and some who aren’t members, yet. One of the most important aspects about operating a business is foot traffic, potential new customers. As a spectator it’s your opportunity to tap into products and services that will be on display throughout this expansive Expo. It’s BIGGER, BOLDER and BETTER!!! We want to see you there.
Mid-month we’re kicking summer off with our first networking event of the season. Mark your calendars and join on the 15th at SingleCut Beersmiths in Astoria for an evening of mixing and mingling with your fellow business owners. Have a cold beverage, exchange a few business cards and stick around for an all the night has to offer. You’ll definitely walk away enriched from the experience.
Closing out the month our Family-Owned Business committee will host their first in a series of presentations on the topic of succession planning. This hour-long session will answer some of the questions you might have as an internally owned organization as you plan next steps towards transitioning to other family members.
Gees it’s only June and we’re jumping right into the summer months with something for everyone to provide you with opportunities for exposure.
You’ve heard me say this time and time again, I love what I do, it’ the greatest job ever. Queens Chamber has been and will always be here working tirelessly on your behalf.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support.
Always Queens STRONG!
