BY THOMAS SANTUCCI
Members and friends of the Chamber, it is an absolute honor to begin my tenure as chairperson of the Queens Chamber of Commerce.
Over the past two decades, I have been involved with the Chamber in various capacities, and it is my belief that the mission of the Queens Chamber rings as loud now as it ever has: to advocate, educate, and network.
With over 1,000 member organizations representing over 90,000 Queens-based employees, we are here to act as the central hub for stimulating business activity. Whether small, medium or large, the Queens Chamber will provide the requisite connections and insight to grow your company.
I would like to thank our past-chairperson, Mayra DiRico, for bringing the Queens Chamber to a higher echelon. From her guidance and leadership, I will continue to work hard to ensure we are that positive catalyst for our Queens’ business owners.
Looking to the future, I am excited to work with Queens Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Tom Grech, along with the dedicated Chamber staff. With over 250 events and seminars each year, we have laid the groundwork and intend to expand on our programming and organization.
I thank the Queens Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for the opportunity to serve our Queens businesses and very much look forward to creating more opportunities to our diverse membership.
