Dear Valued Members:

A new year- a time for opportunity and growth. Throughout this past year’s trials and tribulations we have all recognized the importance of community and being there for one another. Nothing could have prepared us for what we endured- but all that matters is how we perservered. Facing a pandemic represented many challenges but I have confidence that the page is turning and there will be light. 

I am honored to serve as this year’s President for the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce. Throughout my eight years of being a GBCC member – this year truly shined with the power of connection. From finding new ways to engage our members, hosting online events, and continuing to network/ build our businesses- I am proud of what the GBCC accomplished, and we are committed to forge ahead with the same determination, vitality and responsibility that is our core mission of promoting, advocating and educating our members.

The GBCC staff of Executive Director, Leslie Gould and Assistant Director, Robin Foster, quickly adapted and went above and beyond to make us all feel up to date and supported; working tirelessly to provide daily updates about our GBCC members and vital local and State COVID-19 information.  Their dedication demonstrated the human element that is the core of the GBCC, members first!  Also inspiring was the commitment, support and leadership our Board of Directors and members gave to one another truly defining the meaning of community.

As GBCC President, I promise to continue that level of dedication, heart, and care for this new year. 

Again, the challenges and changes we all experienced will continue to evolve and the GBCC staff and Board of Directors will be alongside you as a partner for resources, support and growth.  Look for new ways to promote your business and new event opportunities to give members the best experience. As a valued member, I encourage you to bring your ideas to the table and engage with your GBCC that you’ve invested in. We are stronger together and we will all benefit.

I am hopeful for 2021 and look forward to the great things ahead! 

Jill Michaud, President
