A message from our CEO, Nancy Lindholm:
Things are looking pretty nice at the Oxnard Chamber office. After 13 years in our location on Esplanade Drive in the Topa Financial Plaza, we've updated our look with new paint and carpet. While it's been a bit hectic going through the process, the end result will be a welcoming place for members and guests.
Considering we are tucked up on the third floor of a low-rise building in the center, we get an amazing number of visitors every month. Between our committee meetings, the Board of Directors, SCORE counselors, members utilizing our conference rooms, and people inquiring about various services, we log close to 150 visits per month.
We are happy to greet all those visitors with new carpet and fresh paint!
We will also have a new face greeting our visitors. Michael Lee is the new Operations Manager for the Oxnard Chamber. Michael come to us with an extensive background database management, special events management, and excellent customer service skills. Michael is a native of North Dakota and is looking forward to his first California "winter." Please help us welcome Michael when you are in the Chamber office or at an event.
Tom Carrese joined the Chamber team on June 1 and has jumped in with both feet. Tom is our new Business Development Manager. The number of new members we had last month more than doubled from our average prior to his arrival. Not only does Tom recruit new members, but he works with all members on helping them increase their exposure in the community.
I would like to very much thank our veteran team members, Sharen Strong and Janet Pozos, for taking on extra work while we filled our staff openings. Not only did they cover a vacant position, they got to do most of the packing and unpacking for the paint and carpet project! They are the best!!
If you're in the neighborhood, please stop by to see our new look and meet our new team members!
