Huge Screw Up at the Chamber Banquet

I wish someone at the Chamber could explain why they invited someone to the Chamber banquet and then forgot to explain to them that they are the main speaker. Why is it this person had to pick up a copy of the agenda and find their name on it? I was more embarrassed for them than I was the Chamber. Put yourself in this persons shoes. They are unprepared for what is about to happen and will have to wing it. Everyone at the Chamber is expecting this person to be prepared to talk and the talk to their suprise is subpar. If I were this person I would have explained to the audience the goof up and would have done my best, but this person just took it in stride and did their best. A LACK OF LEADERSHIP AT THE CHAMBER? There has been a lack of leadership in the Chamber for the past few years and the gross incompetence now exhibited only leads me to decide to drop my membership. Besides the Chamber having an end of the year party to tell everyone how great they are I ask the question of "What have you done to bring business into Pittsburg that has benefited all businesses?" Many business owners are not members and I understand why. I've given it a chance, but my kids in high school and junior high could do a better job than this.

I heard about it. Its circulated all over town. Pretty funny. What do you expect out of the Pittsburg Chamber? Poor guy. Whomever is in charge of the chamber needs to be removed from their position immediately. Gross incompetence to say the least.

Army Man: what you say is true about Pittsburg, but the whole state is in the same boat. This guy may have been in those shoes for a purpose I don't know. Tell all what they wanted to hear, I am sure you know the program. If you don't welcome to Texas.

I heard about this. It is the new joke of the town.

Let's see. I looked on their website. That would be Bob Sehon the President of the Chamber and Allen Weatherford the New Chamber Director. I think Pittsburg has had a new chamber director about every year. No one ever last. Can you imagine why? Internal fighting amongst its board members. One lady on the board loves to broadcast to the town about all the chamber problems and then brag about how well her failing business is doing. Others are there just because their company makes them participate. A couple of the younger members are trying to do good, but they can't because of all the internal strife.

The whole Chamber needs to get flushed down the toilet and it should be re-started up by some of the younger business people in town that actually care about the success of the town. The older business people in town have a habit of trying to bury the younger business people if they feel they are competing with them.

The Pittsburg Chamber is doing a wonderful job!! I went to that banquet it was the best one I have ever been to. The newpaper even said the best, one they have covered. I think something people get the wrong information and kind of not sure. But it was great and maybe some that are unhappy can go visit the Chamber and Mr. Allen will be happy to speak with you. I had so questions about things I heard and they were not straight facts.
