Big Things are Coming
Big Things are Coming
In January of 2018, when CycleBar Hudson opened, I was mildly concerned over the fact that I didn’t (and still don’t) reside in Hudson. Through research and the ramp-up public relations and marketing to our grand opening, I knew full well that Hudson was a very tight knit community that goes above and beyond supporting its’ residents, neighbors, and local businesses.
During a phone call with a local business leader, I expressed this concern. He told me “John, Hudson has two communities – our residential community, and our business community. Regardless of where you live, you’ll find that as a member of the business community you’ll be accepted, supported, and welcomed in the same way you’d welcome someone who moved in to the home next door to you”. I’ve found this to be true beyond my highest expectations, and I’m honored to be writing the first blog post to highlight an exciting list of value added resources for our Chamber members.
For nearly three months, many of our businesses have been closed. At the very least, we have had to undergo major changes in our operations. However, being closed, does NOT mean we have not been working! Like all of our member businesses, the Hudson Chamber has been hard at work searching for ways to better serve you, our members, in this new business environment.
As we all re-open, re-engage, and re-connect with our customers, neighbors, and community, we’ve been searching locally and nationally for “best practices” on how to add value to your membership and continue to serve our community.
You’re actually reading one of them right now! Starting with this Blog, we’re excited to announce a list of upcoming services, events, updates, resources, and experiences. It is a diverse list of offerings that we believe every member, at every membership level, will benefit from in some way. Here’s what you can look for in the coming months:
