Chairman’s Message

January 2018

Dear Chamber Members,

With a collective WOW, we turn the page on last year and look forward to 2018 with great expectations and hopes for continued growth and opportunity for our community.  One short drive around Morristown will draw your attention to all the earth moving and construction taking place confirming we are a bustle with all sorts of positive economic activity.

The much-anticipated I-81 Exit 4 connector to Merchants Greene is targeted for completion this year and preceding road completion we are already enjoying tremendous retail and restaurant growth through this developing commercial corridor.

It’s full speed ahead for our local industrial and manufacturing community with growth and expansion from existing companies coupled with the potential for new companies selecting Morristown as their new home.

The climate for business growth and success in Morristown has not been more favorable in many years and your Chamber is committed to the ongoing efforts of improving our community through economic development.  Our theme this year is “Morristown Works”.  The message honors the hard work of our citizens, and at the same time helps communicate that good job opportunities are available in our community.  Also, “Morristown Works” for outdoor enthusiasts, retirees, young talent, entrepreneurs, etc.  As you can see there are many ways “Morristown Works”!

It is an honor to serve as the Chairman this year.  Now a 33-year resident of Morristown, I have appreciated and enjoyed the economic benefits produced by the hard work and effort given by volunteers and the Chamber staff in previous years.  Our continued success depends on an active membership so I will invite you again in 2018 to invest in your business, our community and the Chamber by volunteering and taking part in the activities this year.

Thank you for your membership and support of the Chamber.

Kindest Regards,

Chris Horn
2018 Chairman of the Board
