2016 came and went pretty quickly. Unfortunately for the Chamber, in left more of a whimper than the roar our initiators had hoped for.
With over 140 members of the Assyrian Chamber of Commerce, we had many opportunities to meet with each other, enjoy the company of one another, and met with leading political candidates to make sure the business owners voices were heard. The progress made in the short amount of time spoke volumes to the potential that the Chamber in the great city of Chicago had. Our business leaders here are second to none, and we hope that 2017 will ignite the same passion we had in the beginning to become a part of something greater than ourselves.
Please stay tuned, and active, for 2017 will bring forth a new era for our community. Our goals for the Chamber are greater than ever, and we've heard your voices in creating a better value proposition for our members. Although we'll be striving to negotiate deals on our members behalf, please feel free to reach out to us at any time if you may have any ideas that could help.
The Assyrian Chamber of Commerce would like to wish you, your families and loved ones, all a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season. Here's to bringing in a great 2017!
