As you may know our firm is a proud supporter of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce. We have been an economic development partner and have supported the annual fundraising and membership campaigns throughout the years. I am honored to have served on the board of directors for many years, which means a great deal to me. Hopefully, I have been able to assist the Chamber in its work.
In 2013, the Chamber was led by my good friend, Horace H. Horn, Jr. He spent the last 12 months, not only as the Vice President for External Affairs for PowerSouth Energy, but also as the elected leader of the Chamber. During his tenure, Horace concentrated his efforts on downtown redevelopment, education, military and economic development. I have to say, as a board member, business owner and resident of Montgomery, that Horace has done a fine job. Downtown never looked better, new businesses are opening, our public schools have received national awards and important projects surrounding Maxwell AFB have come to fruition, all on Horace’s watch. We commend Horace for a job well done!
Now that the New Year has begun, the Chamber has a new leader at the helm. Leslie Sanders, the Vice President of Alabama Power’s Southern Division, is the 2014 chair of the Chamber. Leslie has plans to continue the Chamber’s role as a facilitator to encourage new ideas and growth in the city. She understands that the Chamber helps mold our future leaders and that giving those folks an avenue to express their ideas is very important. Leslie will also continue the drive to improve our public schools by supporting programs that develop our labor force and facilitating a partnership with area organizations for after school programs.
Leslie is also dedicating energy to protecting the missions at Maxwell AFB and Gunter Annex with the possible military consolidation cuts looming in 2015 or 2016. Leslie’s final goal is to work with the Montgomery Regional Airport to increase flight service and improve customer service. While there is much work ahead, all of us at Beasley Allen are convinced that Leslie will do an outstanding job.
