Message from the president
Robert A. Hufnagel
Dear Chamber Members:
It is a great honor to serve as your Chamber President for this next fiscal year (2021-2022) along with our dedicated Board of Directors and Chamber Staff. The time to restart your business and return to pre-pandemic activities is now. I am optimistic we can restore, regain, and grow our businesses after a difficult year!
The Chamber is here to advocate, educate, and empower each business, whether large or small, corporate or family owned, in every industry. Every business matters. The Chamber is here to serve you. We will advocate on behalf of all businesses in our great city. The Chamber gives voice to the business community against the ever-growing regulatory requirements that stifle economic growth. The Chamber will speak in favor of legislation that supports our members and helps our city, and we will oppose any legislation that imposes unjust burdens on our economy.
The Chamber provides education for small business start-ups, expansion, and business development through our various partnerships and programs. The motivation for the #ShopRC campaign is that the success of every business owner is a victory for the entire business community. We want residents to shop in Rancho Cucamonga so that our local businesses succeed. We all succeed when retail space is rented, people are working, and sales tax revenue is generated to help pay for public services and safety. We should never forget that every business is essential to someone, be it an employee who earns a living or a customer who receives a desired good or service.
During the month of July, the Chamber will focus on our State’s continued reopening and return to normalcy. We are returning to in-person business connection network meetings. It is an opportunity to connect with other members and increase your business profile through in-person interaction, exchanging ideas, and finding that right person who has the answer to your question. I hope to see you at future events.
Robert A. Hufnagel – Resnick & Louis, P.C.
Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce
President – Chairman
