PRESIDENT & CEO
I have been a baseball fan since my childhood, and my son has a great passion for the sport as well and is quite talented.
For all of those diehard Mets fans it has been quite the unusual year. Naturally the enthusiasm was not the same, but the game must go on. It’s similar to our feelings towards the ongoing pandemic and the current business climate.
As we move into what I would call the home stretch of the year, we can all breathe something of a sigh of relief that business is getting better, though we are nowhere near where we want to be.
The restaurant industry is struggling to hold on, as many other industries impacted by the pandemic are. I’m a firm believer that things will get better and brighter days are ahead.
The Queens Chamber is working toward hosting our first in-person networking event since our St. Patricks Day Luncheon on March 11. Once the climate is right, we’ll move forward. Of course, we will adhere to all the safety guidelines established by the CDC, NYC and NYS.
In addition, our events calendar is full, with several beneficial virtual opportunities such as “Strategies and Techniques for Managing Conflict in the Workplace” and “Using Data to Drive Business Growth” presented in Spanish.
Here at the Queens Chamber we’re working tirelessly to provide you with every resource necessary to help your business thrive, whether you’re back in the physical office or working remotely.
We appreciate the commitment. I have the greatest job ever serving as President and CEO of the Queens Chamber. Don’t forget, we’re in the home stretch.
Stay healthy & strong!
