A Week in the life of a Chamber CEO

Sometimes I find myself wondering what to write about this week. Today I looked at my calendar for inspiration and it occurred to me how diverse our Chamber programs are. So, I thought I might give you an inside view of a week in the life of the Chamber. Hopefully, it will provide you with a better understanding of the work we do everyday to support our business community.

A week in the life of your CEO

  • Spoke in favor of the Dana Reserve Project at the San Luis Obispo County Planning Commission
  • Tour of the Launchpad to a new business/member
  • Dropped off Mixer Flyers at the Leadership Meet and Greet
  • Met with Staff to review Awards Banquet and Plan new guidelines for outreach to our members
  • Attend the Tri-County Alliance Board Meeting
  • Attend a Rotary social event
  • SCORE Business Plan Workshop being held in partnership with our Launchpad
  • Chamber Mixer at Epic Entertainment
  • Tour of the launchpad with a person coming into town to work for a couple of months
  • Support meeting with Leadership Management team
  • Meeting with San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Paulding
  • Host monthly Government Affairs meeting
  • Celebrate one year anniversary for one of our team members
  • Prepare nominations and letter to the membership for the 2024 Board of Directors
  • New survey to membership
  • Prepare thank you letters to all of our wonderful partners that made the Awards Dinner such a tremendous success

This is all in addition to the daily normal activities that include, invoicing, letter writing, training staff, calls to members, follow-ups to schedule future meetings, catering orders for events, and preparing rfp’s, contracts, etc.

I love the fact that everyday is different. And, that the Chamber does so much to support the business community. It is a pleasure to serve in this way. Thank you for this opportunity! #LoveMyJob
