    Message from Vice Chair Wayne Johnson


    I always look forward to Spring because it signals the start of the “busy” season in District 5. This past week was no exception. On Friday, evening, April 29, 2016, I spoke on public safety at the Classic Uptown Neighborhood Association’s Annual meeting. Approximately 60 residents attended the event. I was able to highlight the many prevention programs being utilized by our Sheriff’s Department and stress to cooperation among law enforcement agencies in battling crime.


    On Saturday morning, I had the honor of hosting the “Moving Your Products Out of New Mexico” business summit. Small business owners, entrepreneurs and government officials learned how to grow their businesses by exporting their goods and services. New Mexican businesses have unique products which can compete in a global market. Their success translates into success for the County and the State. Bernalillo County has strived to create an environment by which businesses, of all sizes, have a chance to prosper.


    Sunday, May 1, 2016 featured the unique and artistic qualities of our residents. I participated in a birthday celebration for Muriel Zimmer. She is 100 years young.   Muriel is very vibrant.  She is still driving, very active in the ceramic program of her residence community and attends church every Sunday.


    That afternoon, I presented Bernalillo County’s Public Art Collection Purchase Awards to 6 extremely gifted and talented high school students.  The County’s program purchased their works which now will become part of our permanent art collection. It was inspiring to participate in the ceremony and be able to see the quality of their photographic projects.

    Tuesday, May 3 2016, we honored the Fallen Public Safety Officers of our Community. The program was presented by the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office and the Albuquerque Police Department. This year’s ceremony was very emotional and touching in that our own Deputy, Michelle Carlino-Webster’s husband, APD Officer Daniel Scott Webster, lost his life this past year. 


    Our Deputy Robin Hopkins, was able to participate in the ceremony.  Robin suffered injuries while involved in car chase trying to apprehend a very serious criminal in October 2013. When I see Robin and Michelle and all of our public safety officers, I realize the tremendous sacrifice they have made and are making to keep us safe. I pray that they return home safe to their families and thank them for their service to our community.

    EM Residents,

     

         Ah, Spring. Snow on Monday, "fire weather watch" conditions forecast for Friday. From one extreme to the other. The complete forecast discussion is here: http://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=abq&wwa=fire%20weather%20watch. A reminder - "fire weather watch" forecasts are early warning "red flag" predictions, the only difference is the level of forecast confidence. Keep your eyes on this as we get closer to Friday.

     

         We recommend that you bookmark the following two web sites: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/abq/, and http://www.srh.noaa.gov/abq/?n=forecasts-fireweather-dss. These two sites should be reviewed daily as you prepare for work.

    Hello Everyone!


    Spring has arrived; it's a time of renewal, and with it comes some exciting news from the East Mountain Chamber.


    We are happy to introduce Gail Rossi as our new Administrator.  Please come meet her at our Thursday, 5/05/16 luncheon meeting at 11:30 am.


    While Julie Albright will be missed, she has moved out of the area and begun writing the next chapter of her life. We wish her all the best after many years of service.


    Meanwhile, Gail is looking forward to moving the Chamber to the next level in terms of increased membership, exciting networking events, updated newsletters and more. Gail brings with her a plethora of experience in the business world, including working in conjunction with various Chambers of Commerce.


    She will be introducing herself to all in good time, but meanwhile, please feel free to reach out to her via email at info@eastmountainchamber.com. She welcomes input from you and any tips, suggestions, ideas or info that might help her to acclimate quickly and provide the great support you look for from the Chamber, which brings me to the next topic of interest.


    This is YOUR Chamber. We are here to partner with you, and increase your outreach to the community you and your businesses serve.  Our goal as your Chamber of Commerce is to help promote your company and facilitate great connections.


    Sarah Edgell, manager of Sandia Park Self Storage, will be speaking at our 5/05/16 luncheon about networking being the key in building anyone's business and making your presence known throughout the community.  It is easier to do business with someone if you have a relationship with the other business profession, know about their business and what they do.


    While we wish it could be as simple as paying your dues and waiting for the business to come knocking on your door, it requires participation on the part of our Members.


    We would like to know what we can do to help our local businesses achieve and maintain the type of success we all strive for, so we welcome your input.


    The monthly luncheon meetings give you a chance to not only socialize, kick back and enjoy a great meal from a local member restaurant, they allow you to do invaluable networking, and offer so many opportunities -- from arranging cross-marketing programs (a win/win/win for all, including you, your business "partner", and your clients), trades for service, and a myriad of other benefits.


    The 5/05/16 luncheon will be provided by Greenside Café and have a Cinco de Mayo theme. 


    Please bear with us while we implement some new programs, policies and protocols. This is timely in view of the new bylaws going out, and a new season and fresh ideas coming in.


    We are proud to be an integral part of this wonderful community, and to continuing to make it an even better place to work, live and thrive.


    Sincerely,

    Nancy Carpenter, President

    East Mountain Chamber of Commerce
