Letter from the President
My name is Kathy Baldobino, and I am excited to be the 2018 Navasota Grimes County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors President. I am a lifelong resident of Grimes County, where my family and I still reside. Our county has seen tremendous growth and change over the years, and we look forward to what is in store for the future! I have been with NOV Grant Prideco for 29 years, am a graduate of Navasota High School and an active member of Christ our Light Catholic Church in Navasota. I love Grimes County and want to improve our community in any way possible.
I am looking forward to a successful and fun year! The last couple of years have been such a time of transition for the Chamber. 2018 is a time to build on our successes and continue to move forward, with a focus on strengthening our programs and expanding our importance and relevance to our membership.
Our Chamber is totally funded by memberships, key investors, and our events. We are committed to being accountable to our members, our key investors, and our community. Grimes County is a great place to live and work. We have embraced economic development, worked and partnered to help strengthen our educational system, and can boast to our visitors that Grimes County truly is the “Best Part of Texas.” The mission of the Chamber is to develop and provide leadership within the community so that we are always growing and improving in these areas. Quality communities are the ones where businesses want to locate and where people want to reside.
Our programs and events this year include: Coffee with the Chamber; Chamber Academy; Bob Whitten Memorial Golf Tournament; New Member Breakfasts; Realtor Breakfasts; Economic Development Forums; Small Business Forum; State of the City Luncheon; Groovy Grapes Wine Walk; Reds, Wheats & Blues Festival; and several other events still in the formative stages.
To be successful, we need you! Find a committee or program that interests you and volunteer. You will have the opportunity to network and join us to help the Chamber and our community. I hope you find being involved with the Chamber to be a personally rewarding experience.
President, Board of Directors
