Welcome back from what I hope was a rejuvenating Thanksgiving weekend. As the year winds down, I’m hearing from so many of you that you are tired. Really stretched. I truly hope you’ll find time to recharge, re-center on the “why” that keeps you energized, encouraged each day.
Fourth quarter for your chamber is all about gearing up for the year ahead, setting our priorities. As a team, we’ll also be taking some downtime at the end of December so we, too, are recharged and ready.
Today I want to update you on the Chamber’s policy priorities into 2023.
By now you should know that I strive to approach our work, use our voice, thoughtfully. As it relates to our policy work, we spent the entirety of 2022 taking a deep dive into topics we believe will be transformational and that we can impact: public safety, housing, and the benefits cliff. Through that deep dive, our Public Policy Committee developed a set of recommendations we’ll be pursuing next year. On Nov. 15, we presented our 2023 Advocacy Priorities to the St. Paul Area Chamber Board of Directors for their review and approval.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
See you in the trenches.
