Ambassador Corner – May 2014
There are many good reasons for joining the Modesto Chamber of Commerce’s Ambassador Team. I joined to spread the word that Modesto is a growing economic community. It’s a community that has the infrastructure to support large companies as well as small, also a community that offers opportunity to its members and provides a great environment to raise their families.
I am a Communications Expert. I work for Utility Telephone Inc.; a company that has its headquarters in the Central Valley, offering internet, voice services and hosted VoIP solutions.
In my position at Utility, I have researched the surrounding communities and discovered that Modesto is one of the lowest cost areas for fiber and copper based internet solutions. When companies look to move, they, of course, look for economic real estate and shovel ready land. They also need to consider Internet and voice services costs as communication needs are an ever growing requirement for business success. Modesto meets that challenge.
I am looking forward to meeting new faces through the Ambassador Team. Let’s spread the word that joining the Chamber of Commerce is a great way to stay involved in the community and to be a part of the expansion and growth of Modesto. If we all work together, we can find better ways to commute to Modesto, lower the unemployment rate, find positive activities and job opportunities for the local youth and help make Modesto a favorite stop for new and expanding businesses.
