As I prepare to depart the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber as president on June 18, I want to thank the staff, the Board of Directors, the membership, the volunteers and the communities for their support during my tenure. During my three-year Chamber stint I have enjoyed working with each of these groups as all have brought a different perspective to the Chamber's success.
I leave you in good hands as my successor, Joe Bauman, is a longtime Chamber advocate. Many of you are familiar with Joe in his role as a journalist for more than 25 years, the last 19 with the Observer & Eccentric newspaper chain. He was a reporter, editor and assistant managing editor. In 2000, he was named managing editor of the Eccentric group, and spent 18 years covering the greater Birmingham community.
Joe has also served on the Chamber Board of Directors for a number of years and will be replaced by Brian Henry of eTitle as Board Chair. Please look for Joe's column to begin June 27 and please feel free to contact him to welcome him aboard.
