Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Sept. 12.

We can improve our community by working together and striving for excellence. If you don't care what the business down the street is doing, you should. New blog post >>

Alexandria is currently experiencing some pretty exciting times.

The local economy is strong. We have a strong business community that represents a vast array of services and products. We have a strong education system, a strong healthcare system, quality law enforcement entities, active nonprofit and service organizations, and so much more.

Our downtown is vibrant, when many historic downtowns across the state are struggling to survive.

That's not to say we don't have our challenges - lack of workforce, lack of affordable housing options, lack of daycare availability and a struggling mall are some of the biggest problems plaguing our area right now. But they are the same issues that many other communities are facing.

The exciting thing is that we have identified our issues, and many different entities are working to try to come up with answers to those problems. I truly believe that if we continue to work together we are going to come up with some solutions that will make our community shine even brighter.

The Alexandria Chamber's current strategic plan focus areas revolve around collaborations, operational excellence, satisfied members and strategic programming. All of these are about building relationships, which is what the Chamber focused on doing in 2017. These focus areas are also about striving for excellence, which is the Chamber's 2018 theme and vision.

In 2017 we worked to establish and strengthen relationships throughout the community that would better position us to be a unified community. The goal was to get the community's various entities working in harmony toward the same goals instead of duplicating services or working in parallel fashion.

By pooling resources, knowledge and strategic thinking, we knew we could be more efficient and better stewards for our community. We're excited about the progress made in 2017.

This year we are building upon those relationships to strive for excellence - within the Chamber and throughout the community. Our goal within the Chamber is to bring all of our services and programming to a level of excellence. But we want that for our entire community as well. We've got a lot of good things going on here, and we are hoping everyone will join forces to bring that good to the level of great.
