Let me take a moment to introduce myself. I’m Katie Lowe, incoming Board Chair of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce for 2021, and I am honored to serve in this role. I work as an Executive Director of YMCA of the North. I have two kids, enjoy being outside with my family and cozying up with a good book. I am involved in Rotary, the South Robert Street Business Association, the Tri-District Community Education Advisory Council and am passionate about ensuring all people feel and are welcome in our communities.
Whatever path this past year has taken you down, we know and understand there have been challenges and triumphs for all. People and businesses alike have done and seen things that we have never thought possible or experienced before. We’ve worn masks everywhere, some businesses have unfortunately closed their doors, some have added doors, some have created outdoor spaces, while some have added new lines of products or services to adapt to the pandemic, all while trying to do their best to keep their businesses afloat. Through it all, Chamber members have had the bond and opportunity to call upon each other in times of need. The River Heights Chamber has hosted blood drives and provided tools, resources and virtual webinars to help our valued businesses navigate the swells and support the wonderful people of our business community.
The River Heights Chamber of Commerce has centered our efforts around partnership, supporting our business community during all times, especially now, and working together to accomplish more than we can alone. Now is not the time to go at it yourself, it’s the time to band together and forge ahead with a common goal: grow your business. Whether that’s growing your connections, building relationships, learning how to do something differently from another business who’s tried it already, or having a team of professional leaders advocate on your behalf, the River Heights Chamber of Commerce has you covered.
Thank you for all you do to support local businesses. We look forward to “seeing” you and continuing our partnership in the new year!
Take care and be well!
