As 2019 ends, we are thankful for the growth and success we've enjoyed this year, and we look forward to what the new year will bring. All of us at the Chamber know that nothing we do would be possible without the leadership and support of our members and our Board of Directors.
So many of you have stepped up to lead and help us make our "Chamber family" the best. It is hard to believe that we are just weeks away from ushering in 2020. Next year will mark another milestone in the history of the Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce—65 years serving our businesses!

Pam's Corner: November
If you were among the many who attended any or all of the week's events, you will no doubt understand what I mean. We began the week with a packed "Chamber for the Membership Appreciation Breakfast" where Mayor Blake and Senator Maroney recognized the contributions of the Chamber to our community. And much appreciation to Cracker Barrel for a scrumptious start with warm biscuits, scrambled eggs, and a hash-brown casserole that is still being talked about.
There was an incredible energy in the room and it seemed to set the tone for the rest of the week, as we found that our scheduled lunch-and-learns required "overflow" seating. Each presenter—Score, Jocelyn Murray, Tanya Wallace, and Dewey Forbes—provided relevant take-aways, with members hungry for the Chamber to schedule more. However, SUBWAY made sure that they did not leave hungry for food by providing great wraps and mini-sliders.
Our evenings were filled with out-of-the-box networking events. The first ever collaboration with our affiliate the Network of Executive Women found us at bin100 sharing stories, food, and drink with owner Elena Fusco as we were treated to speaker Carolyn Finch, who shared her professional life as a woman in business over the last 50 years. We look forward to future collaborations with the group. But wait, there is more (insert smile)... [ more ]
