Dear Chamber Member,

The coming year will be full of challenges and opportunities for the St. Croix business community.  With the current economic condition of the Territory, now more than ever, we need to be united and cohesive.  As a member of the St. Croix Chamber of Commerce you make a very clear statement to the people of St. Croix that you are involved and an integral part of our community. Through the Chamber, your voice can be heard by our legislators, executive agencies and even the Governor.  As a united front the power of our organization can bring about positive change.

After a careful review of revenues and objectives, the Chamber has decided to modify the annual dues payment schedule.  Effective January 1, 2017, all dues will be due and payable on January 1st of each year.  Members who have paid dues between Oct. 1 ,2016 and Dec. 31, 2016 will be credited through to December 31, 2017.

We realize that this may cause some confusion, but it will allow the Chamber to better serve you and the St. Croix community.  Keeping track of membership status has proven challenging for both the Chamber as well as its members.  By having memberships due at the first of each year, we can simplify membership monitoring as well as achieve some other very important goals:

  • As January is the month for our Annual Membership Meeting, we can all be certain of membership status as we plan for this event
  • A single membership date will allow for a single notice that goes out to all members at one time, eliminating the possibility of an individual notice not being sent or not seen by the recipient
  • If the usual recipient of these notices is no longer with the business, a general reminder can be seen by other employees of the business
  • By collecting the majority of annual membership fees at the beginning of the year, we will have a huge head-start on assessing our financial needs for the year
  • It allows more time for our Executive Director and other volunteers to focus on other important issues the Chamber is concerned aboutAfter a four-year period without an Executive Director, we are excited to introduce our new Executive Director, Frederick Handleman. Fred is a long-time resident of St. Croix and comes to us with a wealth of experience and an understanding of the workings of business and the government. With his assistance and guidance, the Chamber will move forward and expand its influence on improving the business environment and quality of life on St. Croix.

    Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to your active participation in our upcoming events.  Please look out for our newsletter in your inbox or visit www.stxchamber.org . Fred is available at (340) 718-1435 or fredexvi@gmail.com.  Your feedback is always welcome.

    Let’s have a banner year.
