Hello from the desk of the Alliance. With two ribbon cuttings this week and an Executive Board Meeting, we have had a good week! Spero Health and Davis Handyman both had great turnouts and awesome things to share about their businesses. I always start ribbon cuttings off by saying it is a wonderful day when we welcome a new business to our community. Twice this week we have done just that. Let’s go out of our way to help each one make Ashland and Northeast Kentucky home for years to come. (As always, for bonus points with Kari… SHARE those LIVE streams to your personal Facebook pages and/or leave a COMMENT welcoming the business to our community.)

We are also getting ready for the Ashland Alliance Board Meeting this coming Wednesday. I am looking forward to sharing with the Board the progress our team has made in adapting and learning from this COVID-19 experience. It has forced us to find ways to market and bring business to your doors and bottom line. This is something I am especially proud of. We have applied the emerging business model for today for every business in the Alliance family. Kari has prepared a short presentation about social media engagement and how you can make a difference for us and our business community by spending a minute or two a week leaving comments on or sharing our social media posts. If you’re not on the Board and would like to hear how to make a difference in this way, contact Kari. She’d love to hear from you!

We are here to help make you successful. Please use your membership. It is always worthwhile to sit down and discuss your business and how we can assist you along your way. It is an honor to be your Chamber of Commerce and to represent our area’s interest to the world in Economic Development. Together we will make this a stronger economy.
