The Millington Area Chamber of Commerce is all about it’s members and the city of Millington.
And it was the pair that convinced Chamber President Charles Gulotta and staff member Teri Flannagan to make some changes to increase awareness about the organization’s purpose and make members happier.
One of the first changes for 2014 is clear to see. Normally the Chamber has hosted it’s monthly membership meetings at Old Timers Restaurant. But members wanted to move the venue to other locations to showcase more of Millington.
The first stop in 2014 was the Harvell Civic Center in the Banquet Hall. With food provided by Applebee’s, the first Chamber Membership Meeting of 2014 was conducted.
Gulotta welcomed new members like USA Stadium, Rusty Wallace Racing Experience, A2H Architects and Iron Horse Skillet.
Gulotta also introduced last year’s Chairman of the Board of Directors Murph Carver to perform the Passing of the Gavel. The transition in leadership signified Carver stepping down from the position and handing the job to 2014 Chairman Dianne Baker.
Baker introduced the full Board. And members were informed about the city’s sign ordinance review by Charlie Goforth.
Then the Chamber made a special presentation to Shelby County Commissioner Terry Roland. Roland was presented a Resolution by Gulotta and Baker for his service to the community and representation.
After community reports from CAPT Douglas Walker (NSA Mid-South), Lisa Anderton (Millington YMCA), Jeremy Rochell (Parks and Recreation) and Pam Kendrick (Memphis International Raceway), the members welcomed guest speaker Cynthia Blevins director of USACE.
