As the owner of a new business, I felt there was some value in belonging to the Chamber, to what extent was unknown. I (serendipitously) found an office in the Union Cowork space (where the chamber is located), met Rick and his team, and joined the Chamber shortly afterwards, and a few months before beginning operations. I joined the Membership Outreach Committee as a means to get to know other, community oriented business owners, and shortly after this, the Coronavirus pandemic hit. I hadn’t yet started my business when everything was coming to a screeching halt. I was able to have discussions with the business community that could have never happened were it not for my Chamber affiliation. Additionally, I witnessed first hand the heart and soul, energy and collaborative leadership provided to this community by Rick and his team.
As we continue to struggle with the challenges of changing rules and uncertainty, and the ongoing inability to meet people in person, the introductions, connections and friendships I have made thanks to the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce, have been invaluable.
