This week, Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Briannne Yontz answers the questions:
Q: How long have you been involved with the Chamber of Commerce?
A: I’ve been at the RHBC Chamber since June of 2011; prior to that, I spent 12 years with Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce.
Q: How do you feel the Chamber connects community businesses and people?
A: Even with all of today’s technology, people still want to do business with people that they know and trust. There’s no substitution for the value or importance of networking and connecting with other local businesspeople.
Q: What have been the greatest blessings of working with the Chamber?
A: Realizing all the wonderful assets our community has to offer and the quality of life we have here in Richmond Hill. There are many, many hard-working people making a difference every day. It’s the “average” people that change the world and impact lives.
Q: What do you hope to see in the next 30 years for the Chamber?
A: Thirty years is a long time to look in to my crystal ball. … But I’d like to see the Chamber continue to work with other community partners, the city, county, Development Authority, school system and civic organizations to continue to make Richmond Hill the best place to live, work and play.
