By Thomas Grech, Executive Director of the Queens Chamber of Commerce
Fall is back and the Queens Chamber is ready to rock and roll! Over the next two months, we have a number of major events on tap. These are excellent opportunities for you to engage with our membership and spread the word of your organization. We exist to educate, advocate and network for your business and will do everything we can to connect the dots for you.
As the leaves turn and fall, I want to impress upon everyone that your success with the Queens Chamber is directly related to your involvement in our member committee meetings, events and seminars. The more you network and meet like-minded individuals, the greater chance you have to make meaningful business connections. As such, I want to make sure you are apprised of all information to make this happen.
