Dear Neighbor of Southeastern Connecticut and Southern Rhode Island…
For quite some time the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut has worked collaboratively with other organizations for the betterment of the region. A good example of this collaboration is the recently formed partnership with the Builders and Remodelers Association of Eastern Connecticut to produce ‘Eastern Connecticut’s Premiere Home Show’ in April of 2013.
This show will take place April 20 and 21 at the Mystic Marriott and will showcase over 150 businesses in the building and remodeling industry. It will be the region’s only locally organized home show.
Even though the show is a few months away, booth reservations are preceding at a rapid pace, led by the show’s title sponsor, Overhead Door Company of Norwich who will have a prominent presence there.
The Chamber and the BAEC are taking the reservations from businesses that recognize the value of getting their products and services in front of the thousands of visitors we expect at the Marriott. Several companies have reserved multiple booths because they recognize the value of getting out in front of the public.
Earlier this year, the Chamber partnered with General Dynamics Electric Boat and Dunkin’ Donuts to honor our men and women in uniform at our third annual Military Appreciation Breakfast at the Mystic Marriott. We have organized this tribute to the men and women who serve our nation in uniform out of a profound sense of gratitude for their service to our nation. With that same sense of respect and gratitude, in November we presented the William Crawford Distinguished Service Award to Ulysses B. Hammond, the vice president for administration at Connecticut College.
We are proud of our robust membership; working together across the region is in everyone’s best interests and we at the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut keep that in mind every day.
