The governing and policy-making body for the Moore Chamber of Commerce is the board of directors (BOD). The BOD is responsible for ensuring the chamber is accomplishing its mission and implementing the organization’s strategic plan. The BOD is representative of the Chamber’s diverse membership, and nominations to the BOD are considered annually.
When my family moved to Moore in the mid 70’s we were greeted by the Water Tower at 27th & I-35 that said “Welcome to Moore, The Smile America City!” I have always loved that idea of our city and have found it to be true through all of the time I have lived and worked in Moore.
When we were faced with the tragedy of a storm that took precious souls from us we smiled through our tears and found ways to honor them as best we could. We faced the daunting task of rebuilding major parts of our neighborhoods and community and we smiled as we repaired and replaced long cherished landmarks.
Moore has had many reasons to smile over the years. We have raised world renowned musical artists, scientists, business leaders and are the home to a former Miss Oklahoma. All of these things make us smile, and they should.
We are able to smile because The City of Moore has leadership in our local government that is always ready to do the things necessary to help its citizens and the business community. We can smile because we have a world-class school system led by a home-grown superintendent that educates and prepares our children to be productive citizens in our community.
As we enter 2021, we enter it coming off of an……..Interesting year. I am excited about the opportunity to lead the Moore Chamber of Commerce this year. As we know, there are always great things on the horizon for our fair city and the Chamber will be right there at the forefront of any opportunity to enhance our, already great, business community. The Chamber staff is first class and is not only ready for those opportunities, they are actively seeking them out.
I hope that you will take advantage of the opportunities afforded you by The Chamber. It is my firm belief that if you will, you will understand why we are “The Smile America City!”
Welcome to Moore
