Petaluma Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors

A farewell message from your
2019-2020 Board President, Mike Harris!

As I wrap up my year as the President of the Board, I would like to first thank the Petaluma business community for entrusting me with this honor. In addition, it’s been a joy to work with a collaborative board of directors and an incredible staff during these uncertain times.

Needless to say, it’s been an unusually bumpy year. The pandemic has affected virtually everybody in our society. Our Petaluma businesses have been immensely affected as well. Thank you to the CEO of the Chamber, Onita Pellegrini, and her staff for the amazing pivot that they did during this COVID crisis. Throughout this crisis they have been continuing to help and be a hub of information for our local businesses. They have worked hand in hand with other organizations in town, partnered with the City of Petaluma and had discussions with other Chambers throughout California to help wade through this process.

We have all worked together throughout this process and we’ll continue to work together. We’ll be stronger and more determined on the other side.

Thank you again for this honor.

All the best,
Kevin Jones A welcome message from your
2020-2021 Board President, Kevin Jones!

I am honored to be assuming the President’s role on the Petaluma Area Chamber Board for the 2020-2021 term -a year that will be nothing like what I was expecting just a few months ago.

Events of the last several months have thrown an entire box of wrenches into all of our lives. The impact of the COVID pandemic on our local businesses, on the lives of each of us and our families, and on the operations of the Chamber has been startling. About the only thing that seems certain is that the coming year will bring continued challenges in all aspects of our lives. We have already had to find new ways of surviving. We will need to do more of that. At least for the foreseeable future, the large events that brought us together and financed our programming will need to be re-imagined. Likewise, the type of support that our member businesses need is evolving rapidly.

As daunting as that might be, I am truly grateful that we are facing these challenges in this community. Time and again, Petaluma has proven the importance of community - whether helping our seniors and supporting our businesses during the pandemic, to providing assistance to our Sonoma County neighbors evacuated from areas threatened by fire, to acknowledging the work that we need to do to support those among us who struggle with experiences of discrimination.

Most especially, I am grateful to be working with an outstanding group of Board members and, of course, our outstanding CEO and staff at the Chamber. I am confident that the value that the Chamber brings to our members will only become more important this year - and I personally invite (and count on) each of you to let the Board know what you need. We are here to support you.

Stay well and active,

Kevin Jones
