On the Latest Edition of “Dear Sandy,” Assemblywoman Galef Speaks with Leaders of Local Chambers of Commerce

In the most recent edition of “Dear Sandy,” Assemblywoman Sandy Galef sits down with Deb Milone, Executive Director of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, Bill Nulk, President of the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, and Gayle Marchica, President of the Greater Ossining Chamber of Commerce to discuss various aspects of each chamber and how they interact with the communities they represent. Topics range from the benefits and services provided by local chambers, programs currently being developed to boost the local economy, to how the local chambers can work with local and state governments to benefit all of their members. Ms. Milone, Mr. Nulk, and Ms. Marchica share details of their respective chambers to better explain who they are and how they work. Each guest offers different ideas on tourism in the Hudson Valley and ideas for expanding local businesses going forward. From organization of members and hosting of events for local businesses to assisting in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, these chambers are always looking to support small businesses and the local economy as a whole. “Local Chambers of Commerce offer important services for our communities’ growing small businesses,” said Assemblywoman Galef. “Hosting this discussion allowed us to learn more about the work they do, how they accomplish what they set out to do, and how they can help to grow local economies.” To learn more, tune in to cable television at the following dates and times.
