President's Message

What is a Chamber of Commerce?

Welcome to the Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce’s official website. I wish to thank the board for electing me as President for the 2018-2019 term. I would like to thank Angela Cummings, past President for her dedication and direction. This is an exciting time in the evolution of our growing organization. I would first like to thank you for your interest in our dynamic Sussex& District Chamber of Commerce which is located in the beautiful Town of Sussex.

We pride ourselves in being a promoter of business and facilitator of information for our business community.

By design we are always seeking improvement and growth. We see both of those activities as positive concepts that we will continue to embrace. You will see the Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce continually engaging its membership for local events.

We have built a well-respected board of directors of local business leaders whose primary directive is to keep abreast of how well the area's businesses are performing. Utilizing this information makes us more relevant. Providing networking and building self-confidence is what we do best, as well as providing business lunch & learn sessions leading to increased business opportunities for locally owned businesses. We are in the process of completing our 3 year Strategic Plan and will be launching some revolutionary new initiatives and lunch & learn topics which will be sure to impress.

If you are a member, thank you for your investment into the Chamber. If you are not, consider joining! Your financial support keeps us doing our best work in helping local businesses grow. We urge you to join one of our committees, as smart and articulate business people are always an enhancement to our organization.

The Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce is here to lead the growth, development and the rise of strong business development throughout the region. Be a part of the excitement; so that you and your business can be a part of this economic surge for locally owned businesses!

We look forward to seeing you at one of our many Sussex & District Chamber of Commerce events.

I always welcome and encourage new ideas and suggestions.

Sincerely,

Paul Bedford

President
