Williamson County’s three main Chambers of Commerce have voted overwhelmingly in favor of unification, according to an email from Unification Board Chair Brad Dunn, Williamson County Chamber President CEO Nancy Conway and Williamson County Chamber Chair Judy Hayes.
Similar emails were sent by the Brentwood Chamber and the Cool Springs Chamber.
This is the text of the email:
To All Chamber of Commerce Members:
On behalf of your Board of Directors, your Chamber Staff, and the Transition Board, we are happy to report that you have overwhelmingly accepted the unification of the three Chambers with an aggregate vote in excess of 95% approval.
Thank you and congratulations for helping to achieve this historic and exciting step for our County. As a current member of the Chamber, you will automatically become a Charter Member of the new Williamson County Chamber of Commerce and begin immediately to help shape the future and enjoy the benefits of this new and dynamic organization.
From the very beginning, the process has sought to unite and strengthen our business community and it is our shared belief that we are at the threshold of achieving that high aim. And while the work of the merger is largely behind us, the work of being the best Chamber of Commerce in the United States has only just begun.
Exciting days are ahead for the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce- One Williamson, One Chamber. World class programming including- high powered networking opportunities, renowned luncheon speakers, peer learning trips to other cities, educational and work force development programs never before seen or considered- are just around the bend.
Stay tuned and stay involved. The future begins today.
Congratulations one and all!
Judy Hayes, Chairman
Nancy Conway, President/CEO
Brad Dunn, Transition Board Chair
