16 Jan A Letter From The President
Dear DIBA members,
With 2017 past us we all have a great deal to be thankful for. The least of which is the fact that we live, work, dine, shop and play on Daniel Island. I’ve been proud to be your president last year and for 2018. As an association, we have accomplished a great deal, thanks to the extraordinary efforts and selfless time the board members have given to develop a new website, broaden our social media and increase our membership by over 21%. We provided some of the best networking opportunities by monthly sponsored socials, a party cruise that was filled with sun, great food and drink and by offering a table for the speaker series all for the very low membership fee.
Daniel Island businesses and the professionals that work there have expanded more in 2017 than any year in the past. As noted in the Daniel Island News there was over $1 billion in new commercial development being invested in 2017 and more is on the books for 2018. DIBA would like all of these fine businesses to be a part of our association so they can benefit as members to have the best forum to network with like professionals that work and live around us.
This year it is our intention to increase membership even more by offering more. We are working on new ways for our website to be more interactive, improve our business networking and provide an overall more beneficial business environment. As we hope to gain new members we also are grateful for the input and generous support of our current members. Together we can make 2018 an even better year-more productive and even more fun.
I am looking forward to serving again as your President for 2018 and welcome your input of thoughts and ideas.
Best wishes for a great 2018
Chuck Lattif, DIBA President 2017 / 2018
