Here is what the Nashville Chamber of Commerce has been up to for the month of January. The Board of Directors met Wednesday, January 7 for a busy meeting.
Due to the busy holiday season, they had not met for their second monthly meeting for the past couple of months, but agreed to get back to that schedule to allow time to go over the bylaws and revise them, as they have not been revised for more than a decade.
New Director, Doris Povolish, told the Board that she was busy cleaning the office and straightening up the storage room. She has also been getting things and lists together for the Membership Drive. That committee will meet next week and get the mailings ready.
The board discussed some comments made during the December meeting about Gutzler’s Donuts closing, but that has since been found to be untrue, as Gutzler’s Donuts will continue to be open and serving the community of Nashville with fresh-made donuts.
In an effort to get more information out about the businesses of Nashville and what they do, members are welcome to be speakers at the General Membership meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. If anyone is interested, contact the Director at 327-3700.
There was a suggestion of having a Moonlight Madness event in the spring, as well as in the fall, so the Board is investigating the possibility of this new event.
The topic of ribbon cuttings came up and that is available to any new or re-opening business, not just Chamber members. Look for ribbon cuttings at the Bakery Nook and Rachel Kried Photography in the future.
The Volunteer of the Year Banquet is coming up in March and ads will be in the paper for a few weeks asking for nominations. They will be gathered and presented at the February General Membership meeting for voting.
Board Member Tom Speedie was voted as President Elect and will succeed Pam Smith next year.
