Thank You!
It’s almost impossible for me to believe that this year is already coming to an end and with it, my role as Chairman.  As one of my last official actions, I want to thank you, all of our members, my fellow board members, ex-officio officers, committee chairs and the entire Chamber staff for the continuous support I received throughout the year. 
Perhaps the biggest honor goes to Debra Lynn-Schmitz, the Chambers true leader who makes everything happen. The passion and dedication she has for her job and to the business community is amazing.  She is a true professional in every sense of the word and as a business owner in the community – I am thankful for her many years of dedicated work advocating for the local business owner.
It has also been an honor to serve side by side with so many great business leaders that I’ve met through the Chamber.  You are the men and women who own and operate businesses that create jobs and economic opportunity; you provide benefits that give your employees and their families’ security and peace of mind; and contribute significantly to our tax base which supports schools, public safety and other community services upon which we all depend.  In short, business is the foundation upon which our community stands.  Rest assured,  the Medina Chamber will always be your partner.   
Just as the chairmen that have come before me, our incoming Chairman, Valarie Rapp of Homestead Insurance, is poised to grow our efforts in Business Advocacy, Economic Development and Member Services.  I can think of no one better to lead us into 2012 which is sure to be another exciting year.  As outgoing chair, she has my full support. 
The only thing I now have left to look forward to is my continued involvement in the Chamber as past-chair and board member.  I hope to do this for as long as they will have me!  It’s truly been an enjoyable experience and an honor to serve our members.
Thank You!
Dave Mueller
