The Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce will be heard from today.
This is my first report and I will start by expressing my gratitude and appreciation for the professional relationship I have had with Ginanne Italiano. For years, Ginanne has inspired me to learn, engage and advance my own career and I couldn’t be more pleased to have been named the new President and CEO of the Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce. Ginanne will be missed in the day-to-day operations, but has graciously accepted a new role to help us through the 2021 legislative session representing the Chamber’s advocacy initiatives.
The world has changed dramatically over the past 9 months, and your Chamber will be launching new benefits designed to directly assist you and the community as we continue to stay relevant in these uncertain times.
It's a brand-new day for the Chamber and I’m thrilled that you are here with us.
As the year wraps up and we turn our attention to family, I wanted to send a note of thanks to and FOR each of you.
As I reflect on this past year, I can list a million challenges that we had to face. COVID!!! Job losses; restaurant closings; business losses; children in school, not in school, in virtual school; families separated; the discrimination; the craziness of the election; the loss of loved ones…. The list goes on and on. It is 2020 after all!
But, as I watched my children excitedly flip the countdown calendar to Santa’s arrival, I realized that so much good has come out of this year. It would take far too long for me to list it all, but there are a few things that I want to bring to your attention.
