  • Welcome from the Chamber

    It is with great pleasure, honor and humility that I am able to serve as your new Chamber President/CEO. Together, with our Board Members, we will begin to transition our chamber into a fine-tuned organization within our community.   I look forward to the upcoming challenges and opportunities that arise.  I am very proud of the role this Chamber plays in supporting local businesses.

    As a community, we all share the same challenges. We are faced with a growing, but somewhat fragile economy. We will always remain hopeful as we look toward the future.  Our will to succeed is found in knowing that we are not alone, and now more than ever, it is critical that we work together, hand in hand, to find solutions and effect change. Strength in numbers lends weight and credibility to our message, and it is the backbone and foundation of YOUR Chamber of Commerce.

    As an advocate for local businesses and the community, the Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce is uniquely positioned to assist in effectively facing these challenges. By leveraging the collective strength of our membership, we are able to help influence public policy related to business and economic development as well as quality of life issues impacting businesses such as education, housing and transportation. However, at the core of what we do is providing value in programming and connection to your fellow business owners through our membership investment levels. There is something for everyone to get involved in and benefit from.

    I am fully committed to continuing to assess all of the programs and events offered in order to ensure that your investment continues to have value. As we introduce new ideas this year and moving forward, we encourage your voice, your opinions and your involvement and engagement. I am hopeful that you will slowly begin to see a shift in the offerings and benefits in membership with the Natchitoches Area Chamber and be curious to learn more. Just give us a call…we love to talk Chamber!! Our focus this year will be to create better educational events, quality networking opportunities and increased visibility for every member business. Without question, we are an organization committed to building a strong, prosperous and thriving community.

    We are fortunate to have a large, diverse membership, rich in experience and expertise. We draw support from a large base of volunteers who serve on our Board of Directors, committees and as Ambassadors. These individuals understand that our strength lies in our ability to work together and they are willing to contribute their time and talents to sustain a strong and dynamic organization vital to the Natchitoches business community.

    We invite you to join us in our quest to build a stronger and more prosperous community. Invest in yourself, your business and your community by becoming involved in the Chamber. We welcome your participation.

    In Good Business,

    Liz Juffin

    President/CEO
