Executive Director's Letter

                                       On A Positive Note….

                                       We are one month into the New Year and what can I say, it’s It’s off to a great start!

                                       We are definitely not idle or resting on our laurels! Between several trips to
                                       Santa Fe participating in networking events and promoting our wonderful little
                                       – big city, I had the awesome privilege to spend a few days with fellow executives
                                       and learn what other Chambers are doing in our state while and addressing

                                       legislative topics. We had the opportunity to attend the Chaves County EDC
                                       legislative dinner, the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau AgFest 2018 and
                                       the Legislative Reception with the Leadership Roswell class, where, of course, we
                                       were the most sought-after booth again this year! I truly appreciate the Redcoats
        Candace Lewis                  for attending and representing Roswell and Chaves County so magnificently!

        We confirmed our Annual Rise with Roswell Speaker, Amberly Snyder for March 15th! Please see full flyer on this
        event. It’s a little early but will definitely be worth waking up for!

        Another event we are super excited about, is the Annual Balloon Rally that was formerly the “Old Timers Balloon
        Rally.” It is with great excitement that the Roswell Chamber has taken the responsibility of offering this event
        and continuing this much anticipated annual Annual tradition. However, the event is now the Roswell Chamber

        of Commerce 31st Annual “Rise OVER Roswell Balloon Rally.” Follow us on Facebook for up-to-date information
        regarding this exciting event!

        We are doing everything but keeping still! In February, we will kick off our Membership 101 class. This is for
        ANYONE that is a member or that might be interested in joining the Chamber. We will speak on the advertising and
        networking benefits the Chamber has to offer your business and educate the public on what the Chamber does in

        our community.

        I would like to also encourage everyone that has Facebook or Instagram or any other social media platform, to look up
        YOUR Roswell Chamber of Commerce and like us, follow us and attend our events. They are free and open to anyone!

        Keep in mind that the Municipal Election will be March 6th, early voting begins on February 14th for more details
        on voting sites, you can go to or continue reading in this months Chamber Connections for all
        the details. Best of luck to all the candidates!!

        Be blessed, stay safe and love one another!
