An Exciting Year is ahead of US<br />

Kandi Menne: Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce President<br />

<strong>November</strong> marks a oneyear<br />

anniversary for me as your<br />

Fairmont Area Chamber of<br />

Commerce President! What a<br />

whirlwind it has been. Believe it<br />

or not - I am still bursting with<br />

excitement and enthusiasm for<br />

the future!<br />

Here's what I have been up to<br />

I’ve been fortunate to been part of the<br />

Chamber Executive leadership program – It is<br />

six days at six different Chambers. Each session<br />

gave us unique insight in all things Chamber. I am<br />

also part of the SWMCCE (Southwest Minnesota<br />

Chamber of Commerce Executive) that meets<br />

quarterly and have attended two<br />

(MCCE)Minnesota Chamber of<br />

Commerce Executives conferences.<br />

It is a wonderful community of<br />

Chamber Executives who have<br />

a wealth of knowledge and area<br />

all willing to share how they “do<br />

things”.<br />

Some of the highlights of my first year<br />

are<br />

• We re branded our Fairmont Area life guide<br />

• Brought relevant speakers to our networking<br />

meetings, increasing attendance<br />

• Hosted a seminar with an employment law<br />

specialists to help us navigate through the<br />

new employment law changes<br />

• The positively Fairmont Group relaunched the<br />

Fairmont Area Life website with a fresh look and<br />

more content<br />

• Brought Cindra Kamphoff, an award-winning<br />

keynote speaker and certified professional<br />

coach for leaders, professional athletes, and<br />

championship teams to the Fairmont Opera<br />

House and the Fairmont High School<br />

• Hosted the first annual Sip n Shop event in<br />

Fairmont - thank you to all who participated<br />

• We are transitioning to tiered dues to<br />

streamline membership and values<br />

• Are attending downtown retail meetings<br />

• Held our strategic planning - we have set some<br />

additional goals for 2024!<br />

I've been fortunate to have Rachel and<br />

Sydney working hard to get things done and<br />

having a willing attitude. I often come to the<br />

office with the statement "I've been thinking".<br />

They are always up to an adventure and<br />

challenge!<br />

Coming up in the next few months:<br />

• Soon all businesses will be receiving<br />

information for the new tiered dues<br />

• Glows Parade <strong>November</strong> 17. We are excited<br />

about the added festivities on what is<br />

traditionally Glows Parade<br />

• While you prepare your shopping<br />

list, remember to always think Shop<br />

Local. When you do, that puts money<br />

back into the community you live in,<br />

when you shop local, you're making<br />

a personal investment in your neighborhood<br />

and community. Money is kept in the<br />

community because locally-owned businesses<br />

often purchase from other local businesses,<br />

service providers, and farms.<br />

• We are still looking for volunteers to go into<br />

the Kindergarten though 6 grade classrooms<br />

5 sessions to teach the Junior Achievement<br />

curriculum. We supply all the materials you need,<br />

all we need is you!<br />

We enter the time of the year that is the<br />

time of gift giving. When deciding on where<br />

to give, please consider the Fairmont Area<br />

Chamber of Commerce. As a nonprofit we are<br />

continually fund-raising for our Ag and Business<br />

Scholarships, for Junior Achievement in the<br />

schools, the holiday street pole lights fund. (The<br />

red lantern lights are getting really old) Consider<br />

a donation in any amount – you may allocate<br />

2


ate by facilitating access to leaders, communication and education through programs and services for its members.<br />

what your donation is for – We thank you in advance<br />

We will say thank you for your service and dedication to the<br />

Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce to four current board members<br />

whose last board meeting will be in <strong>November</strong>. Outgoing Board<br />

members are, Left to right: Blake Potthoff (Fairmont Opera House),<br />

Sara Cyphers (D&S Trophies), Keith Hoye (City of Lakes Media) Jeff<br />

Rouse (Our Story Productions)<br />

At our <strong>November</strong> board meeting (continued from page 2) we 3<br />

will welcome 4 new board members<br />

Joe<br />

Loughmiller (Phileo by Lesaffre), Miranda Tulowetzke (Sweet<br />

Financial Partners), Zak Clemetson (Mayo Clinic Health System -<br />

Fairmont), Kermit Brown (Kinship of Martin County)<br />

<strong>2023</strong> has been a great year of learning, camaraderie,<br />

challenges and many successes-<br />

As your Chamber President, I am honored to work alongside<br />

our dedicated Board who all share the same vision, business growth<br />

and healthy community environment. The door is always open stop<br />

in and see us! You may reach me @ at 507.235.5547 or e-mail:<br />

president@fairmontchamber.org<br />

Membership Drive Continues<br />

and you receive the rest of the <strong>2023</strong> Chamber year for free. That<br />

is up to 13 months of Chamber membership for the price of 12<br />

months.<br />

Why Join? There are numerous reasons to<br />

join the Chamber. We work hard to educate, engage<br />

and advocate for our community businesses,<br />

as well as working to understand and be proactive<br />

on workforce issues that affect many businesses. When one of<br />

us is successful, it benefits us all.<br />

We offer numerous networking opportunities like Bureau 14,<br />

Agri Business, Young Professionals 2 Golf Tournaments throughout<br />

the year to name a few. Junior Achievement in our Schools and Area<br />

Career Exploration are 2 Education and future workforce things we<br />

also do.<br />

There seem to be two types of Chamber members. One type<br />

joins to take advantage of all of the programming the Chamber provides.<br />

They will network, volunteer, attend seminars and<br />

work on committees to take full advantage of the connections<br />

you can make as a Chamber member. The other type<br />

of member joins the Chamber to help and promote the<br />

greater good of our business community. They know that<br />

every time the Chamber helps or benefits a local business, it helps all<br />

of our businesses. Both of these are solid reasons for being a Chamber<br />

member and we appreciate if you joined for both reasons too!<br />

Remember, when you join the Fairmont Area Chamber of<br />

Commerce You are Investing in the future of our community!<br />

the purchase, UHD has been working on an expansion and transition plan,<br />

which includes identifying both physical and service-based needs at the site.<br />

The expansion will add 5,300 sf of new space on the first floor and 3,050 sf<br />

and 8 others throughout town.<br />

This night was so much fun with almost 100 participants in attendance.<br />

There were lots of different beverages try amongst the Locations<br />

as the locations got to pick what they wanted to serve some had alcohol<br />

and some did not . We loved seeing businesses get creative with what they<br />

were going to serve that night. Businesses enjoyed interacting with those<br />

NEW Residential and Business Lighting Contest<br />

We have partnered with the City of Fairmont to bring the<br />

holiday lights decorating contest. We are thrilled to be able to do<br />

this again in <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

fair for everyone participating. We have decided that everything<br />

through our Facebook Page and the winner will be chosen by the<br />

amount of likes that get on the photo they submit. Four categories<br />

of lighting decorations will be chosen: Categories include First,<br />

Second and Third Place. Also new this year we will be doing Best<br />

Business Decorations.<br />

Next year there will be a new rule if you won First Place the<br />

year prior you cannot win again the following year. We hope this is<br />

so we don’t have the same winner each year to get more people to<br />

participate to bring the holiday cheer to Fairmont.<br />

Watch for our Facebook Page to get entered into the lighting<br />

contest. Your photo must be posted in the comments under the<br />
