President's Message

Ilse York

March is almost here and even with these cooler temperatures the Chamber office is warming up for one of March's major events; and that is our upcoming Taste of Pulaski County and Basket Auction. This event is the Chamber's largest fundraiser of the year and we really strive to make it a fun experience for everyone who attends. There is a lot of work that goes into making sure everything goes off without a hitch. Besides the usual advertising and logistical preparations we also keep the wonderful Chamber staff and Ambassadors busy collecting donations, setting up the Community Center, providing entertainment and getting menus from participating restaurants. Yes we have been working hard already!!

The Basket Auction really begins in January when the chamber office begins advertising the event; notify restaurants and soliciting for basket donations and sponsorships from our membership. (For the record, ANY business in Pulaski County can take part in the Taste of Pulaski County and Basket Auction; you don't have to be a Chamber member.) As February rolls around and we're securing the details of the event, things at the Chamber office are put on standby (to some extent) until the big day is closer at hand.

March is when the real fun begins! Once restaurant registration is closed the menus are created and printed on the event directory. Next thing on the list is the collection of basket donations. This is just one-way we as Chamber Ambassadors play a tremendous role. On a fateful Friday, Ambassadors take their lists and begin stopping by all our donating members, picking up their baskets. I have to tell I know from the office staff that; being at the office is both fun and hectic at this time. Because while it's exciting to check out all the great donations it is also hard to keep up with checking them off, typing up descriptions, and also going over what is yet to come in. Sometimes I wonder how these ladies keep it all organized and together as the Chamber office looks like Santa's Workshop at that point in time. We have a wonderful giving community and are blessed to have so many caring and giving businesses for sure.

Once the big day arrives, for the Ambassadors and staff the main focus is just getting through it with all our t's crossed and i's dotted. Invariably things always seem to go just as planned, if not better because we have a great TEAM of people that work together very well, and we do it all with a smile. We owe the success of this event to our community, our membership and our Ambassadors, that goes without saying, and we are grateful to have each and every one of you there!

This year, I am just going to be very optimistic and say that the Taste and Basket Auction will be as successful as ever, we will have some great entertainment in place that will create a great upbeat atmosphere. And with the theme for this year "Around the World!" we are adding in some international flair!! If you're in the neighborhood on March 29th, and hungry, stop by the St. Robert Community Center! For $10 an adult and $5 a child (12-5 years old, 4-under free) you will be treated to a virtual all-you can eat buffet (including drinks) from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. courtesy our area restaurants and you'll also be entered to win door prizes awarded throughout the event. Chances are you'll be signing up for your auction paddle once you look through all the unbelievable basket packages we'll also be offering. Hope to see you there!

Tourism Notes

Spring is just around the corner and the Visitors Center is gearing up for the influx of tourists for the season.

If they stop by your restaurant, maybe next time they will stay and visit one of our museums, enjoy one of our step-on tours and overnight in Pulaski County. What does that mean to you? The groups enjoy their stay more, (and go back and tell their friends!), the group impacts the community more, through spending and increasing tax revenues. It's a win-win for you, your business and your community.

If you missed the news, Pulaski County USA is a featured destination during the 2014 Fireball Run Production. Check out our local media outlets for details and mark your calendar for October 2nd and 3rd, to welcome the Fireball Run teams as they spend time interacting at over 20 locations around the county, assist charity groups and spread the word on missing children across America. FIREBALL RUN is a gripping 8 day, 2000 mile, life-size trivia game, where America serves as the game board; part live event, part streamed, and part episodic series. All mobile-ready episodes are online to watch anytime- from anywhere. Unlike a Reality show this competition is real. 40 driving teams compete for bragging rights, a greater cause, and a plastic road sign. This America-sized game is played live routing through inspiring destinations across the United States. Success of this production rests on our communities. Become involved, show your passion and love for Pulaski County and stay tuned for details!!

We invited you to stop by the Visitors Center to learn about the fantastic attractions Pulaski County offers, brochures to plan your Missouri get-away's, and to shop for souvenirs.

The Missouri Economic Development Council has announced that the Certified Work Ready Community and the National Career Readiness Certificate programs are at the forefront of workforce development.
These programs give Missouri employers and prospective business tools to evaluate and improve Missouri's workforce. The NCRC is rapidly becoming the barometer by which decision maker's measure workforce quality and helps make Missouri communities more competitive to win new jobs and investment. Therefore the MEDC is requesting funding to complement this program. Pulaski County is in the process of applying for certification to be Certified Work Ready Community. MEDC is asking the legislature to increase funding for customized training to 20 million dollars. Many companies base their location decisions on the availability of a skilled workforce and the presence of strong training programs. The MEDC is also asking the legislature to fully fund the Missouri Partnership. This agency is responsible for Missouri's Business Attraction efforts. I receive on average 3 leads per month generated by Missouri Partnership. These leads are potential projects for new investment and employment in Pulaski County. This is very important for the new Spec Building that the Pulaski County Growth Alliance is building. The MEDC has listed the following as of concern for economic development in Missouri: The current tax credit system, transportation infrastructure needs, use of bonding as a means to address urgent capital improvement projects, and programs that discourage investment and reinvestment in Missouri. This past week the legislature in a Senate Committee discussed Tax Increment Financing. Every year there is debate on this important economic development tool. The retail developments in Pulaski County would probably not occur without this tool. I receive weekly updates from MEDC'S Lobbyist and will monitor any pending legislation that might affect our economic development efforts.

From the Banks of the Roubidoux!

Dear Citizens:

These past two weeks have been very hard for me and my family, as my Mother passed away and I have been in Arkansas saying "goodbye" to her. Councilwoman Diana Stanford, filled in at the monthly Council meeting, as Mayor Pro Tem Mike France is in Alaska. She did a great job. The Council recognized the work of the M.A.T. Platoon during flood restoration and their work with the COAD group.

It is a busy time for the City. The biggest news from this month is the agreement to contract with an Automated Notification System for our citizens, with a company called "Code Red". Many schools and towns use this form of communication to reach people quickly. We will be utilizing it for bad weather alerts, as well as emergency situations within the City. It will be available to alert for such things as tornado warnings, water breaks, planned power outages and even, by our Police Department for emergency situations. You will sign up for an option of land-line phones, cell phones, texting, email and even, Facebook.

This past year our tornado sirens developed many problems and in researching the cost of replacement and repair, it became obvious to the Council that we needed to look at other options. Spending tens of thousands of dollars on a system that can only be heard in certain locations and is designed for people outside their homes didn't seem to be a wise use of tax money. This system is affordable and offers notification to anyone who receives city utilities. We will be getting details out once we contract this service and you will be asked to sign up for what type of notification you wish to get. The Council and I feel this is a great step forward for our city and we hope that everyone will take advantage of it.

Officer Victor Weir was awarded "Officer of the Year" by Chief Cordova. We congratulate him! A Citizens' Police Board was also formed to allow input by our citizens into the hiring of police officers. The first members of the Police Board are Tim Berrier (a downtown businessman), Twyla Cordry, Ollie Jackson and Alan Clark.

The Park Board has begun work on the building of a park stage in the Roubidoux Park. Architect Stephanie Ireland will be designing this project. Hopes are to have it open by Old Settler's Day. We have also begun plans to move the Street Department to the Cinema building during this year and to rebuild our RV Park from the August flood.

The WDBA plans St. Patty's Fest, March 15, 11-5 on the Square in downtown Waynesville. Come out for a great time!
