Message from the Chairman of the Board, Cary Root

Chairman of the Board, Cary Root

Happy New Year chamber members!!  What makes the Solon Chamber so great?  The staff, the board, and all the businesses that participate. That’s not a platitude. Anyone who has been a part of other business, social or charitable organizations has seen detached and formal meetings that don’t lead to getting anything meaningful done in a timely manner. Not at our chamber – the meetings and events are beneficial and fun.  You’ll make more friends and new business associates than you can believe.  And you’ll enjoy it. The Solon Chamber is the best because it provides our business community with a long list of meaningful member benefits, and because it’s fun.

Speaking of getting things done, on January 1st we officially rolled out our all-new Shop Solon First website. It’s an enhanced business directory that lets local consumers and businesses find and do business with you. Every chamber member organization is in it right now. To see your listing, and to enhance it with photos and longer descriptions of what you do, just go to  Your cost is zero.  Just another amazing benefit of being a Solon Chamber member!

I’d like to thank outgoing chairman Greg Rosenberg for everything he did over the past two years.  Fortunately he will continue to be involved in the board and executive committee for at least the next year and hopefully beyond.  Welcome to our new board members Chris Anderson of Effectium, Hal Becker of The Becker Group, Dan DeCrow of Signature of Solon, Michaleen Paul of Your Paul Team – Keller Williams GCSE, and Bill Russo of Securus Financial Strategies.

Remember that we are your greatest advocate in the Solon business community. If you can think of something in addition to the hundreds of events and programs that we provide every year, please let us know. You can email me directly at, and you can reach Jennifer Natale, our president and CEO, at  Hope to see you at the next Chamber luncheon on Tuesday, January 17th!

– Cary
