SACC At Work

We hope you have a wonderful holiday! Our office will be closed Wednesday, December 25th.

We would like to say Thank You, to all for a very full and productive year at the SACC.

As we transition into 2014, here’s an update of what’s happening at the Chamber.

First, thank you to all of you who’ve renewed your memberships. We want to make sure you are taking advantage of all the opportunities available to you. Please feel free to contact the office for all your member benefits.

Some staffing changes: You’ll be seeing more of Andy Newman at the front desk. He’ll now be working full-time in the office. Karey Milne is still with us on a part-time basis—and will be providing more behind-the-scenes support going into 2014. Contact Andy if you’ve got any questions about your membership: Andy’s email is andy@sandyoregonchamber.org.

Thanks to outgoing board members Lisa Foster, Jay McRostie, Rod Barker for your generous service this year. I am also finishing up my term of service. We welcome our new board members: Debbie Grimes, Dawn Loomis, Marlene DePaolo, and Debi Vann. The board will be electing a new President and Vice President at their January meeting. Until then, thanks to our interim President Cindy Bloomer and Interim VP Marlene DePaolo for filling in the gap.

Thank you for your membership!

Wishing you a peaceful and prosperous 2014.

Madeleine Eno and the SACC board

Upcoming W’y East Artisans Guild “Snow”

Wy’East Artisians Guild will be having a collaborative show at the Chamber Office entitled “Snow” starting January 2nd. Several artist will be displaying their work including Rod Stroh (top), and Lea Topliff (bottom), each trying to capture the mood and feeling that is snow.  Whether it is the glare and bone chilling cold of a snow day, or the soft silence of a snowy night, snow has always evoked strong feelings for those who experience it. Capturing that has been, and remains a challenge for the artist.

Come see the show starting January 2nd.  The Chamber office is open Tuesday through Saturday 9am-5pm.

News 
A couple of scams going around to alert you about…

Scam #1
One of our board members received a phone call, he asked for a call back number so the caller hung up – so he can’t tell you what the scam call was going to lead to.
Number on my caller ID was: 882-013-1115 (of course that could be a ghost number and something different could show up with other calls – you can’t call the number back.)
This is roughly how the call starts:
“Hi I am Tom Williams from the Oregon Business Development Office and we have information that your business is flagged as moving – we would like to verify this and verify your new business information”
He verified with the real Oregon Business Development office that this is a scam call.  So warn your staff and any of your business clients.

Scam #2
A Company called Corporate Records Service in Salem, Oregon is sending what appears to be Legal Notices to local businesses requiring payment of $125 for Annual Corporate Records and references the Annual Report required by the State of Oregon.
This is asking for stockholder information of your Corporation which should not be given to anyone except the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office.
This could lead to Identity Theft of some sort.
Be aware and alert your staff not to process the Corporate Records Service documents. It is not a government agency.
