CEO & PRESIDENT
The fourth Thursday of this month we will take a collective pause and gather with loved ones to give thanks for our many blessings. So much happens over the course of a year that it’s only appropriate for us to all have a grateful heart as we usher in the 2021 holiday season.
If your business has survived these past 19 tumultuous months, you indeed have just cause to have a grateful heart. The challenges you’ve faced are a distant memory, and the end of the year is fast approaching with hope for a brighter new year.
Queens Chamber has a number of programs scheduled this month designed to assist with everything from small business grants to increasing your customer base to honing communication skills. You’ll have multiple opportunities to participate in the New York State COVID-19 Pandemic Small Business Recovery Grant Program with Peter Aust, who will explore the grant program.
Chamber member Edward Cresci with Thryv will guide you through getting more customer utilizing Google. This session is essential, as clients are the heart and soul of every business large and small.
And Joshua Bienstock is back with another workshop targeting one of the most critical aspects of business: effective communication. Each of these programs will benefit your business and set you on the path for sustainable success. To learn more and find out how to participate, visit queenschamber.org.
I don’t need to tell you what to be thankful for the during this season, however, I implore you to pause and focus on those things which are of importance. My hope is you’ll come away with a grateful heart. My heart is made glad day in and day out serving as president of this amazing organization and knowing that you and Queens residents thrive.
Thank you for your continued support of Queens Chamber.
Remember, together we’re STRONG!
