For the past year, I have had the honor and privilege to serve as the chairman of the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce. At the organization’s annual meeting on January 26, I will pass the gavel to Michael Palamone. I know he will do an outstanding job in 2016.
Over the past 12 months, the Chamber — led by Todd Murphy, his excellent staff and a great board of directors — have done some amazing things, leading policy discussion, hosting outstanding events and growing membership for a vibrant business community. This year the team of board and staff members won the 2015 Louisiana Chamber of the Year. What an accomplishment! Great Job!
I also want to thank my entire staff at Renaissance Publishing for allowing me to dedicate so much of my time to this organization. I have tried to serve the business community well during my term as chairman, and our team of professionals at the office have done a great job moving our company forward in 2015.
And finally I want to thank my beautiful wife, Andrea, for her great support and encouragement, not only during my role as chairman but in life.
Happy New Year and have a great 2016.
