Message from the Chair
The Independence Chamber of Commerce is an organization that assists businesses and individuals to be leaders in the community.
Leadership is a very important role in any community. Without leaders, the community would not be able to function properly. A leader is someone who has the courage and determination to take charge and make decisions even when an outcome is unknown. Leaders are also responsible for motivating their fellow members of the community to work together towards a common goal.
Leaders play an important role in building strong communities because they help people get together and form bonds that can last for years or even forever. There are many ways that you can build strong communities with your friends, family, colleagues or neighbors, but one of the best ways is by becoming a leader within your own social circle. The more people you can inspire to become leaders within their own social circles, the stronger your community will be as a whole.
You know what a President of the United States, Patrick Mahomes, and everyone in the room have in common? We are all leaders. So, lead!
Thank you for being a leader in the Independence Chamber of Commerce.
