February 2011

Weekly Newsletter: 2-24-11

This week’s newsletter features an overview of Herb Liberman’s presentation at our upcoming March 15 membership luncheon at Denny’s.  The topic is right-on for the times we live in and addresses many of the issues retailers are facing in our community.  Herb’s last workshop at the Chamber office was a great success with more than 15 members present.  Those who came said the two-hour session was so informative they could have stayed to ask questions much longer.  This event launches a new meeting format for our Chamber.  Never before has a restaurant closed its doors to the public during the noon hour to host our Chamber, and others are also offering to do this.

Weekly Newsletter: 2-17-11

This week’s newsletter is chock full of Chamber news  and coming events.  There is a recap of our record-setting February Luncheon at Vintner’s Inn with 95 attendees and several presentations—including the keynote address from Ben Stone, Director of the Economic Development Board.  There is a piece about our surge in membership with 15 new members including a new corporate sponsor.  We also talk about the new Chamber Fireworks Fund and the fact that Windsor’s Fire Protection District won the Bucket Brigade Blood Drive.

February Chamber Business After Hours

If you’re like me, when there is a Monday holiday I sometimes forget that the day after is really Tuesday – not another Monday.  With  President’s Day at the start of next week, be sure to check your calendars or day planners so you won’t miss the Chamber’s Business After Hours next Tuesday night from 5-7 p.m. at the office of Maureen Weinstein, CPA.   She is located at 930 Shiloh Road, Suite #40-2, on the West side of 101 in the Shiloh Business Park.  Come and network with other Chamber members and guests.  These mixers are a great way to exchange ideas, possible referrals and even some sales leads– and have fun!  Hope to see you there.

Weekly Newsletter: 2-10-11

This week’s newsletter is chock full of new events.  Chief among them is the fact that more than 50 have signed up for the monthly membership luncheon at the Vintner’s Inn on February 15 at 11:30 a.m. with guest speaker Ben Stone talking about Good Times Ahead in 2011.  This is going to one of the highlights of the year with an emphasis on the economic outlook for Windsor and our area.  You have until noon tomorrow to call in your reservation along with saving a spot for a guest.

Weekly Newsletter: 2-3-11

This week’s Chamber newsletter provides an overview of the Business Expo and our free seminar series – just four days away.  There is still time to take a table, or even half a table, at this year’s gala event.  Come and celebrate the recovery with the Dow Jones average above 12,000 for the first time in over two years.
Also included are short stories about our February 15 luncheon speaker Ben Stone and his optimistic view of 2011 (plan to come and bring a friend), as well as a piece about the addition of a new member to the Data Instincts team.  There is  an overview of  the Movie Nights on the Green sponsorship program and a last chance appeal to increase Windsor’s lead in the Bucket Brigade blood donor drive.

February e-Newsletter

This month’s edition of the Chamber E-Magazine features a cover story about the coming of the Senior Games to Sonoma County (and Windsor) this June 2-5. It is an excellent opportunity for businesses, organizations and service clubs to get involved in a series of sporting events with great potential for generating revenue for restaurants, hotels and other shops here in our town.  Some 30 sporting events are possible, and eight are planned this year.  Windsor is among this group with a commitment for a golf tournament in 2011.  The door is wide open for local groups to throw their hats into the ring  and plan to organize other events for the 2012 games.

February Member Luncheon

Vintner’s Inn is the venue for our February 15 general membership luncheon.  It is located at 4350 Barnes Road, just off Highway 101 at the River Road exit.  Going south from Windsor toward Santa Rosa, exit Highway 101 at River Road.  Go west one block and turn left on Barnes Road.  The dining room is located in the first building on your  left.  Ample parking is provided across the street.  The meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. We know you won’t want to miss this economic overview of Windsor and the region.
