WELCOME NEW PRESIDENT CYNTHIA MANLEY
The January General Membership Meeting was a tremendous success as the 2013 Board of Directors were given certificates of appreciation by outgoing President Linda Goldstein and a huge round of applause for a job well done. Mahalo to Linda Goldstein who did a wonderful job leading the Chamber for the past two years.
The 2014 Board was welcomed by incoming President Cynthia Manley. Guest speaker for the meeting was Le Jardin Academy Headmaster Lou Young who shared his "Lessons Learned" about setting high goals, believing in others and to never stop learning whether a business owner, community member and/or parent. Nearly 100 guests were in attendance and all appreciated Lou's entertaining stories and lively speech
