Word From The Chairman
 

Rob Killen - Kaufman & Killen, Inc.

On behalf of the North San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, our Board of Directors, staff and countless volunteers, thank you for your membership and involvement. The first nine months of 2015 have been very successful for the North Chamber and we still have a number of great involvement opportunities and important issues in the final months of the year.

November Elections

San Antonio has had a busy election year with the November 2014 general election, the May 2015 local elections and an unprecedented number of special elections in between. With so many initiatives, it is easy for voters to become fatigued and overlook important ballot issues. However, on November 3, 2015 there will be a significant statewide and local ballot initiative that directly impacts our community, as well as elections for local governmental entities like the San Antonio River Authority.

The North Chamber Board of Directors supports two of these initiatives and encourages you to vote yes on November 3 for Proposition 7 and the North East Independent School District (NEISD) Bond.

On June 23, 2015, the North Chamber Board of Directors unanimously voted to support the passage of Proposition 7. Proposition 7 allows Texas voters to approve additional funding for highways throughout the state. During the 84th Texas Legislature, lawmakers approved Senate Joint Resolution 5, which would dedicate $2.5 billion in general sales tax revenue to the highway fund if approved at the November 3, 2015 election.

On September 22, 2015, the North Chamber Board unanimously voted to support the $499.95 million NEISD Bond. As described by NEISD website, “The 2015 Bond focuses on five categories: Safety and Security, Technology, Operations, Extracurricular and Facilities. The bond projects include adding security check-in vestibules, expanding the wireless network for technology devices, replacing the 60-year-old bleachers at Comalander Stadium, and expanding or replacing band halls and fine arts facilities at several middle and high schools. The largest category of the bond program, at nearly $226 million, includes replacing portable classrooms and campus facility renovations. In addition, the District anticipates that the bond will not increase the tax rate for at least five years.”

The North Chamber board encourages you to participate in these important ballot issues this November.

CFO Forum

Our next CFO Forum will be on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at Oak Hills Country Club. Over the past twelve years, the North Chamber has presented the CFO Forum luncheon program to inform attendees about accounting and financial best practices, relevant issues and industry trends. CFO Forum’s history of excellence attracts distinguished speakers… Read more.
