From the Chairman. . .
am honored to serve as 2013 Chairperson of the Board for
the Terrell Chamber of Commerce. Terrell is a thriving
community and its chamber membership is comprised of some
of the nicest, most genuine, dedicated volunteers on earth.
It humbles me to know that I am tasked with leading such
a great group of people.
This chamber is the pulse of the community. They are
nearly all of its facets. Danny and Carlton are constantly
with the city offi cials, the school district, county
offi cials and state representatives to improve the lives
of the people who live, work and play here.
Fifteen years ago my career path led me to Terrell.
My then boss understood the importance of getting involved
in the chamber. Danny soon asked us to co-chair a Presidents
Club team. Later that year we were asked to co-chair a
solicitation team for their annual Civic Auction. I found
both experiences to be a little work and a lot of fun!
And so it began, I’ve been actively involved ever
since. My current employers Doug and Lecia Pritchett understand
well the importance of the chamber also. Their companies
Pritchett’s Jewelry Casting Co, downtown for over
40 years and American Home Care, for 17 years are lifetime
members and corporate sponsors of the civic auction.
My goal in 2013 is to continue to build a strong membership
through mentoring programs and numerous other opportunities
that will allow new and existing members to plug in and
interact. It’s really about members helping members,
establishing partnerships, networks, customers and friends.
Our Terrell Chamber Board of Directors have already identifi
ed important opportunities for improvement and work has
already begun continuing the success with economic development,
tourism, internal operations, and community development.
We have set challenging goals for ourselves and developed
action plans to meet them. Please join us as we lead Terrell
path of success, welcoming new businesses and citizens
to our amazing city.
Barbara Myers, Chairman
