Welcome to the Westbury Carle Place Chamber of Commerce. I believe our community is one of the best places in Nassau County to live, work and raise a family.
As the Chamber President, I am honored to work alongside our dedicated directors and staff. These individuals all share the same vision to help each other and focus on business growth and a more prosperous, healthy, economically stable community.
I want to thank the outgoing president Jerry Elfassy for all his work these past two years. Without Jerrys hard work and dedication to the Chamber we would not be where we are today. Jerry has not only helped to grow the Chamber, but he has strengthened the connection with our member's and the board.
When I first joined the chamber 6 years ago I did not know what to expect. I had never joined a networking organization let alone a Chamber of Commerce. I learned fast the values the Chamber held and the strong connections and bonds it built, that transcend even business. Being the third generation at my family's independent insurance Agency I quickly discovered that it is important to have a connection with the community, businesses, and people of the Village/area you live and work in. The Chamber has done above and beyond that for me. It has created for me a network that not only spans across different industry's but even to other states. You get out of the Chamber what you put into it. This entails meeting other businesses in the community by patronizing, supporting, and promoting one another. In this town we are all on the same team. I can't put a price tag on what the Chamber has given me personally. It has been a rewarding experience, enabling me to meet new and interesting people. These are individuals whom I now consider true friends all because of this organization.
If you are not a member of the Westbury Carle Place Chamber of Commerce, please consider joining us today. Membership is $125 a year.
We have monthly Networking Events at different local restaurants and businesses in the community where all the local merchants meet for food and drink. Our Annual Golf Outing alongside The Plainview Old Bethpage and Syosset Chamber is always a fun day. We provide a Scholarship each year to one Carle Place and one Westbury High School student planning to attend college in the fall. Our annual Holiday Party is another memorable evening for all who attend.
I look forward to working with our directors, membership, local government and the community during my time as President. Remember, we are all on the same team and through hard work everything is within our reach.
