Henderson Ford president Randy Henderson, a 20-year member of the Chamber of Commerce across two states, is encouraging new, diverse membership at the Webster Chamber of Commerce.
“The chamber is a place where people from different backgrounds and businesses meet and develop working relationships,” Henderson stated. “The building of these face-to-face connections through the chamber is a big plus; success always points back to people. The dynamics I have enjoyed over the years with the chamber board members include respect, and comradery. I uphold their fiscal, and efficient board protocol, as well.”
Henderson has been board secretary of the Webster Chamber of Commerce since 2010, following membership with the chamber for a decade, as well as past service on its education and budget committees; and being named the chamber’s 2012 Business Person of the Year.
He initially gained experience as a chamber member as vice chair of his local chamber in Ohio, where, according to Henderson, he learned to forge valuable relationships throughout the process.
Today, Henderson said every community member, especially young adults, should consider becoming chamber members.
“As soon as adults become young professionals, that is the time to start networking,” he stated. “There is not a better place to tap into the experience of potential mentors, and business opportunities. Plus, there is comradery to be enjoyed, and community service opportunities for active involvement.”
