Chamber wraps up another year, plans for future

December 22, 2011

The year is wrapping up for everyone, including the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber president Terri Johansen presided over her last meeting Wednesday afternoon.

“It has been a joy,” Johansen said. “If it wasn't for the great staff I wouldn't have been able to do this. The chamber has some gems working here.”

Treasurer Mark Morgan delivered the financial report. According to Morgan, November ended with a $12,000 loss. Income for the month was only $5,700. Officials are expecting to be about $2,000 in the red at year's end.

“It looks like we are going to have to dip into the reserves,” Morgan said. “It just means we will have to work hard again next year and do what we can to get it to balance out at zero, instead of in the negative.”

Looking into the upcoming year, Executive Director Debbye ValVerde emphasized the importance of bringing in new members.

“We will have to get out there and really run and get more members,” ValVerde said.
