“I’m honored to serve as Chairman of the Orange County Chamber of Commerce, an organization that I’ve always regarded as the most effective advocate for the business community, not only in our county, but in the region and state as well.

We’ve weathered some challenging times over the past few years, but things are beginning to look up out there. The Chamber has worked hard to help our businesses deal with the many challenges facing them and I’m gratified to be part of such a great organization.

Please let the Chamber Board and/or staff know how we can be of greater service to you. If there’s something you think we could do better, we want to hear about it. I’m privileged to work with a great Board of Directors (listed below) and, on behalf of the entire Board, thank you for your investment in the Chamber and for the confidence you have placed in us to work on behalf of you and your businesses.”
