DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

August is here

Here it is August, and that

means it’s time for the American-

West Bank, 23rd Annual Redmond

Chamber of Commerce Golf

Tournament. This year we have

an exciting new venue as Juniper

Golf Course hosts on their award

winning course. As always, this is

Eric Sande a fun day and has earned a reputation

as being one of the best run

and fun filled events in the region. This tournament is not just

a fun day of golf, it is also one of our largest fundraisers that

helps support the Redmond Chamber’s mission and the many

parades, concerts, and activities the Chamber offers FREE to

the community. It is your support that has made the Chamber

so successful over the years and we hope you can join us for

this exciting day. The golf tournament is scheduled for Friday,

August 16th and the cost is $100 per person or $400 per team.

Registration and breakfast will start at 7:00 am and there will be

a shotgun start at 8:00 am sharp, rain or shine. If you would

like to learn more about how you can promote your business

and be a corporate, tee, or swag bag sponsor, give Karen a call

here at the Chamber. We really do need you, so please sign up

for Redmond’s best loved golf tournament, August 16th, and

join us for a fun day on the golf course, with good friends,

great food and fantastic prizes.

Be sure to join us for Music on the Green!

I think part of what makes Redmond such a special

place to live is the genuine sense of community the residents

share with one another and I can’t think of a better example of

this, than at one of the local community concerts. The Redmond

Chamber and Bank of the Cascades are proud to put together

the Music on the Green concert series that happens every

other Wednesday throughout the summer. These concerts

are more than great music, they bring the community together,

foster goodwill and create a sense of pride and unity in where

This month’s “Words of Wisdom”

"It’s not what you look at that

matters, it’s what you see."

-Henry David Thoreau

we live. It really is a joy to see the community come together

both young and old to enjoy an evening of great music. If

you haven’t attended a concert yet, there are still three concerts

remaining, so mark your calendars for, August 7 – Carrie

Cunningham & The Six Shooters; August 25 – Lori Fletcher

with The Rock Hounds, and September 4 – with the Hokulea

Dancers. We are very fortunate to have a host of sponsors

who make this event possible, including our title sponsor Bank

of the Cascades, and our supporting sponsors, Fred Meyer,

Pacific Power, Phat Matt’s Brewing Co., Fly Redmond, Hayden

Homes, BendBroadband, The Redmond Spokesman, Horizon

Broadcasting Group and The Bulletin. Concerts start at 6:00

p.m. and run until 7:30 p.m. at Sam Johnson Park. Be sure to

come down and enjoy this great community event.

Leadership Redmond

I cannot believe that Leadership Redmond is now in

its 10th year of enrollment! It seems like only yesterday we

graduated our first class, the Class of 2004. Applications are

now being accepted and I encourage all of you who are interested

to enroll soon, as only a limited number of applicants

are accepted each year. The Leadership program introduces

participants to the various leaders and organizations within our

community and gives them a broader understanding of the

work done every day to make the Redmond community function

smoothly. The class is a commitment of one day a month

for nine months, starting in September and running through

May. The Leadership Redmond program is a partnership

between the Redmond Executive Association and the Redmond

Chamber of Commerce & CVB. With the support of

our generous Day Sponsors, Scholarship providers and tuition,

we are able to offer this exciting program each year. If you

would like to find out more about how you can help support or

participate in the Leadership Redmond program, please call me

at 541-923-5191. Applications are available at the Chamber, or

by going on line at www.visitredmondoregon.com.

I hope you are all enjoying a fantastic summer

the process of identifying the causes they are most passionate about

1940’s

Annual Redmond Chamber Dinner, Dance & Auction

This year, prom night decorations will glam up the Deschutes

County Expo - North Sister building for our annual Dinner

Dance & Auction. The event combines an extravagant outing,

fundraiser, dinner, live & silent auction for the Redmond Community.

You probably received a donation request letter recently and we

wanted to explain what that donation accomplishes. Auction items

add to the fun and tone of the event, but those same items generate

a lot of discussion and buzz about your business. In some cases,

we are able to combine and highlight groups of items that show just

what makes the Redmond community so special, and how easy it is

to keep our dollars here and support local commerce. Advertisements

are great for suggesting products and services, but these donations

allow buyers to try your product and share that experience, sometimes

at a discount (which can never hurt a review). Finally, proceeds

supercharge the Chamber’s ability to create community events and

activities, as well as promote Redmond throughout the country and

beyond. So if you have already donated, thanks for your support. If

you are considering a donation. It’s a worthy investment! If you’re

curious, give us a call for more details. 541-923-5191

ECONOMIC

UPDATE

REDI’s PPP

No, not the Pole Pedal Paddle,

the Pending Project Pipeline

and its importance

Different to the Pole Pedal

Paddle our PPP is a race for jobs.

For the last decade REDI has

shared numerical data with you regarding

our “pending projects pipeline”

(PPP) without significant detail

Jon Stark

behind the numbers. In this month’s

article, we will attempt to show you how we prepare for and run

the race.

Anyone that has been involved in a sales process is familiar

with the importance of a robust pipeline to help generate

sales. In economic development we refer to the pipeline as

“leads” and the sales as “done deals”. During our sales cycle,

qualified leads become a pending project when they show significant

interest in acting on their interest (expansion, relocation or

development) within the next calendar year.

What’s unique about an economic development sales cycle

is the pure nature of its timeline. Typical sales professionals

work off a cycle several months in duration – from prospect to

potential client to sales receipt. Relocating or considering building

a new facility is one of the most critical decisions a company

may make and therefore often takes a long time. While economic

development projects can, on occasion, occur that quickly, our

typical sales cycles are two to seven years. Yes, years not months.

Why? Because it comes down to capital (cash flow), owner interest,

human resources and timing, which often take years to align.

In recent years, Redmond has been fortunate to see several projects

materialize in months if not even weeks. Consumer Cellular’

s move in behind the T-Mobile closure announcement is an

example of one of our fastest projects, occurring in just over 30

business days.

The only way to keep a pipeline full of potential future

projects is to actively pursue and generate leads. In economic

development this comes in many different forms. REDI partners

with EDCO to increase our regional broadcast both nationally

and internationally by attending several industry trade shows

each year (like Medical Device Manufacturing and Outdoor Retailer).

We also collaborate with Business Oregon in order to

identify potential leads that can be converted into projects and

get insight from industry experts to help us better understand

the changing needs within their industries. In addition, both

REDI and EDCO have comprehensive websites that market the

region 24/7. Many companies have done significant primary

research about us long before we connect with them. While

advertising outside the region can bring some interest, we have

found the return not to be worth the investment. We do, however,

leverage our local visitor guides with material to expose our

community to visitors.

So what does REDI’s PPP look like? It is as strong as it

has ever been in our 25 year history, building on fantastic growth

that has occurred over the last eighteen months. Currently we

are actively pursuing projects with 28 companies in six different

broad based industries; Consumer Goods Manufacturing;

Specialty Manufacturing; Aviation Aerospace; Food Processing;

Bio-science and High Technology. While the majority of these

projects could bring modest jobs as individual projects, combined

they have the potential of creating nearly 2,000 jobs and

$112 million in capital investment. That’s not to say there aren’t

some larger possibilities; three of our prospects have the potential

to add over 300 jobs respectively.

With over 18,000 economic development agencies

competing for projects nationally Redmond, with our strong

list of growing assets, has won a good share of its competitive

processes. Still it requires dedicated attention and that is what

REDI and EDCO are all about – generating leads, converting

them to prospects, then projects and “done deals”. As always,

if you have comments or questions or would like to learn about

any of the other strategies we employ, feel free to contact us.

PRESIDENT’S

MESSAGE

President’s August Address

I begin my August newsletter

article extending an enthusiastic welcome

to Keith Witcosky, our new

City Manager. If you haven’t already

met Keith, I encourage you to reach

out to him, introduce yourself and

welcome him to Redmond. Please

share your ideas with him about our

wonderful city and give him your

support as he begins his new role.

Roxia Thornton Todoro˜

I am also excited to learn, and

share the news, that the Sam Johnson Park Renovation fund will

receive a $210K grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation

Department. This grant increases the renovation fund to $400K!

It is wonderful to see this project take flight. Thank you to everyone

in our community involved in this project and in securing

this much-needed and appreciated grant. I especially extend a

big ‘thank you’ to Heather Richards, Community Development

Director and Project Manager.

In Redmond, August is a fun month packed full of activities

for everyone. I’ll highlight a few:

• As I write this message, our Deschutes Fair & Expo office

is buzzing with activity in preparation for the 94th Annual

Deschutes Fair & Rodeo. Did you know that our fair is the largest

county fair in the entire state of Oregon? It is! We entertain

approximately 240,000 visitors during our five-day fair.

August 15th, John Shipe Band - at Music in the Canyon,

in American Legion Park in Redmond. John is a great singer

songwriter from Eugene-joined by his band to play provocative

original music. A free celebration of Art, Music, Fun, Food and

Family. Food and beverages available featuring Three Creeks

Brewing Company and Cross Creek Cafe.

• The Trinity Bikes and RAPRD Rat Race Triathlon takes

place on August 10. This is an exciting multi-sport event showcasing

Redmond’s beauty and unique landscape. The race will

offer a sprint triathlon, duathlon and a kids’ race. This Triathlon

is a pool-based sprint triathlon (with an optional duathlon) that

is centered around Redmond’s Cascade Swim Center. The race

consists of a 500-meter swim, a 12-mile bike ride and a 5K run.

Both individual and team competitors are welcome. For more

info go to www.racetherat.com.

• The 10th Annual Celtic Festival and Scottish Highland

Games are coming for the first time to the Deschutes Fair &

Expo, on August 10, starting at 10 a.m. Come celebrate your

Celtic spirit and enjoy the Celtic bands, Brother and A Scottish

Heart. Highland athletics, piping, dancing, and vendors of Celtic

wares will all be at the Deschutes Fair & Expo Center.

is being held at the Juniper Golf Course. I thank our sponsors,

AmericanWest Bank and KOHD 9, our media sponsor. The

tournament has a shotgun start at 8:00 am. Call the Chamber

or email Karen@visitredmondoregon.com to reserve your spot

or team. Cascades Lakes Brewing will provide unlimited beverages,

and The View restaurant will have a complimentary breakfast,

and a barbecue after the tournament.

• Big weekend for August 16 and 17 in Downtown Redmond

starting out Friday with the 3rd Friday Stroll from 4:00

p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Then the Drifters Car Club will do a cruise-in

down 5th and 6th Street Friday night at 8:00 p.m. On Saturday,

August 17, Passport to the Arts will be in downtown Redmond

at Centennial Park at 10 a.m. with the Drifters Car Show and

Shine. The double event will feature local artists, vendors, music,

food and vintage cars. The Passport to the Arts will have four

new sculptures unveiled as part of the Art Around the Clock

program, Round II. They will also announce which art piece is

the winner of the People’s Choice Vote. This event also provides

an opportunity for everyone to participate in the development

of the next public art installation. I can’t wait to see which

art piece is voted as ‘the selection to purchase.’ (A small hint

about my choice -- horses are my passion!)

I close with a shout-out to Bob Weeber Chamber of

Commerce and Convention and Visitor

Bureau Ambassador. This month,

I’d like to recognize Bob for doing his

best for the Redmond Chamber Ambassadors.

Bob joined the Ambassadors

Program in 2003. Bob explains,

“I joined to increase the community’s

awareness of the Opportunity Foundation

and it’s mission to serve adults

with disabilities. Networking contacts

at chamber events has directly led

to many work opportunities for the

adults with disabilities we serve. Being

an Ambassador will not only help your

business (networking) but the personal relationships gained are

priceless. All it takes to be a Redmond Chamber Ambassador is

a willingness to “meet and greet” and have a good time doing

positive things for one’s community.” Bob’s says his favorite part

about being a Redmond Chamber Ambassador is meeting great

friends, community involvement and business contacts.

All our Ambassadors give limitless time to our Chamber.

“Success lies not in being the best but doing your best.”

Enjoy your Summer!
