Dividends--February 2006

President's Message
by Dick Ingram,
Chamber President

We enjoy a diverse and robust economy here in the Greater Seacoast. Here, as is true throughout New Hampshire and the rest of the Seacoast Region, our small to medium-sized businesses are large parts of the fabric of the community. New Hampshire is an entrepreneurial state, and while we are blessed with our share of large employers who are leaders in their fields, most of us work at smaller companies and local businesses. The Chamber is no exception. With nine full time staff to service our 1,000 members, and our busy visitor services, we live the challenges of small business every day.

That is why we are pleased to offer a Small Business Roundtable at our February breakfast forum. Sponsored by Bank of America, the roundtable will feature three successful local businesses. Jeanine Sylvester from Runner's Alley, Ed Hayes of Ricci Lumber and Infinite Imaging's Bill Hurley will share their experiences in a conversation moderated by Mary Collins. Mary is the head of the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center. I am sure that this will be an interesting and enlightening discussion. Each of our three panelists bring different experiences and ideas to the table and are representative of the creative and hard-working small business leaders that make Portsmouth and the region tick. I hope to see you there and that you will bring a friend with you. You may find details about the roundtable in the calendar section of this newsletter.

February is a month where we will be concentrating on new member development. This includes our first membership drive in many years, with special incentives both for new members who join and existing members who help us grow by referring new members to the Chamber. Won't you share in the excitement?

One of the best ways that the Chamber can help its members be successful is to work on their behalf with our local, state and national political leaders. Our efforts on your behalf are off to a fast start in 2006.

The new mayor and city council in Portsmouth are just beginning their work for the year as I write this column. We continue to have a strong relationship with the city and its leaders. Our Partnership with the City is manifested by our work with the Economic Development Commission. As I reported last month we are strongly in concert with them on their objectives for 2006. In addition to our ongoing work to promote tourism in the region, we will work with the city as it develops plans for the Islington Street corridor, for the reuse or redevelopment of city assets such as the current library building and the McIntyre Federal Building, the Market Street Gateway to Downtown and the Northern Tier development.

You know by now that "Housing for Everyone" has been a constant theme for some time at the Chamber. Ensuring that housing for an economically diverse workforce has been a priority for several years. We made a lot of progress in raising awareness on the issue in 2005. I am pleased to see that both Mayor Marchand and Assistant Mayor Ferrini have both identified this issue as one that demands concrete action in 2006. We are ready to work with them to turn the "poetry" of the master plan into the "prose" of revised zoning ordinances that will make a healthy housing stock a reality.

Beyond the city limits we have been actively engaged in the debates in Concord over housing, healthcare, transportation tax credits, business incentives and legislation that would raise the dropout age to 18. On this latter issue, we were among the first to support this proposal. While the details of implementation are actively being debated, the business community recognizes that setting the expectation that our students should earn a high school diploma is a basic building block for success in the 21st century economy.

Transportation infrastructure is another vital underpinning of our future economic health. Whether it is needed repairs to the Memorial Bridge connecting Portsmouth and Kittery, improvements to Route 16 and the Dover Point Bridge, or regular repair and upkeep, these necessary investments are critical and the solutions to providing for them will require leadership and some difficult decisions. We plan to be actively engaged in the search for solutions. I encourage your input on the debate and am happy to talk with any member at any time about their point of view or concerns.

Finally, with the New Year comes change. We welcome Kaarin Olofsson to the Chamber. Kaarin fills the opening created when Katie Goodspeed left in January for a position in South Africa. She will be our events and marketing manager and brings to the Chamber a wealth of experience in professional sales and relationship development. Our members and her colleagues on the Chamber staff will benefit from her skills and experience. I know she is looking forward to meeting you and helping each of you achieve success in your business. We are very excited to have her as a colleague at the Chamber.

Put the Chamber to work for you!

BDC Generating Networking
Power Thru Connexions
Program Integrates Chamber's
Networking, Referral Activities

The Business Development Committee has been working for months to integrate the Chamber's networking and referral activities into an easy-to-use and powerful tool for members.

The result of their work, a new initiative branded Connexions, brings together a number of Chamber programs aimed at building B2B relationships, networking and marketing skills, and opportunities for the outside world to connect with member businesses. The program grew out of discussions with corporate product and service buyers who said they would be more likely to buy from local businesses if there was a way to preview and prequalify potential vendors.

"The tools are there, now we just need to educate our members on how to use them most effectively," said Ginny Griffith, the Chamber's business development manager. "That's what we'll be doing over the next several months with help from the Ambassadors and members of the BDC committee." "We encourage members to complete their connexions and interest profiles today," said Griffith. For more information on the program visit www.portsmouthchamber.org/connexions.cfm.

Chamber Plans First
Membership Drive in Years

Drive Features More than $400
Worth of Joining Incentives

It will be like Christmas in February for local businesses who choose to join the Chamber during the two-day membership drive set to start on Valentine's Day. Current members who refer businesses that sign on the dotted line will also get a reward in the form of a credit equal to 10 percent of their prospects' dues.

"Our ultimate goal is to sign 250 new members over the course of the drive," said Kendra Frangos, the Chamber's membership manager. "We have six teams made up of board members and volunteers who will take over the phones at the Chamber Feb. 14 and 15 calling hundreds of local businesses who are not yet on our rolls."

Joining incentives include: the waiving of the customary $25 application fee, a free web link for a year ($100 value), 40 percent off the first purchase of the Chamber's database list ($100 value), 40 percent off the purchase of a Dividends Newsletter flyer ($120 value), two free tickets to a Chamber breakfast forum ($30 value) and other promotional gift certificates and discounts from local businesses like the Lollipop Tree and Best Buy. Other perks include a 10-percent discount for those who pay for two years in advance or who sign up for automatic renewal. Nonmembers planning to attend the Small Business Challenges Breakfast Forum Feb. 15 will get in free if they join the chamber at the event.

"Increasing our membership will generate new energy and perspectives, not to mention a bigger voice and more influence when it comes to meeting the needs of the Seacoast business community," said Dick Ingram, Chamber president. "We invite everyone to get involved, because the more members we have, the more we can accomplish together."

For more information on the drive, or to submit prospects, contact Frangos at (603) 610-5518 or [email protected].

Chamber Hosts SSA
Economic Impact Unveiling

Leadership Voices Concern
Over Workload after 2008

Retired Navy Capt. Bill McDonough and Seacoast Shipyard Association Statistician and Consultant Russ Van Billiard delivered the organization's annual shipyard economic impact statement to members of the media Jan. 27. The Chamber hosted the press conference attended by members of the local media.

While the Shipyard survived last year's BRAC process, SSA leaders are concerned that the Navy Department may try and squeeze the 200-year-old facility out of the work schedule after 2008. McDonough said the Navy still believes there is excess capacity in the system and is working to prove its point by reducing the work coming to Portsmouth and loading up the other three nuclear-capable shipyards. Paul O'Connor, president of the shipyard's metal trades council, also present at the meeting, said the shipyard's workload was expected to fall 29 percent by 2008 compared to the other yards which will see only a 3-percent drop.

This year's report revealed a loss of 100 jobs during 2005 when compared to 2004 levels, although salaries rose $1 million. O'Connor blamed part of the hiring and staffing problems on closing fears during 2005. He said at one point, they had expected 150 people to take the test to enter the work force as apprentices. When the announcement came that the Navy intended to close the Shipyard, only 40 showed up to take the test.

Chamber Chooses Olofsson
as New Events Manager

Former Radio Marketing Star
Ready to Energize Programs

Kaarin Olofsson of Portsmouth signed on Monday as the Chamber's new events & marketing manager and has already started the process of reviewing this year's slate activities.

A graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a BA in Communications, Olofsson comes from a career in radio sales and marketing where she has created and managed many event-related promotions. Before coming to the Chamber, she worked with KFRC 99.7 in San Francisco, WBZ NewsRadio in Boston and WOKQ, WPKQ & the Shark in Dover.

She is also active in the Seacoast community through volunteer work in a number of local organizations. She serves with the Seacoast Kiwanis Club and has provided marketing and public relations support for St. Patrick School in Portsmouth. Olofsson was also instrumental in helping local charities gain exposure through her position as marketing consultant with The Shark.

"This new position allows me to participate more fully in the Seacoast community," said Olofsson. "It is a wonderful opportunity to learn from local business people and from an outstanding team. I also believe the Chamber is in a position to create positive change and I am thrilled to be a part of it!"

Olofsson is responsible for sponsorships and planning all Chamber events which include business after hours, breakfast forums, the annual dinner, legislative reception, holiday auction, holiday winetasting, annual golf tournament and the road race.


Chamber Events

Legislators and Members
Gather for Annual Reception

Gov. John Lynch and
U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley Special Guests

Leaders from the state and the Seacoast community made time Jan. 30 to meet with Chamber members at the annual legislative reception. The event, underwritten by Public Service of NH and Comcast, was held at the Sheraton Harborside Portsmouth Hotel.

Among the guest speakers were NH Gov. John Lynch, U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-NH), NH Speaker of the House W. Douglas Scamman, State Sen. Martha Fuller Clark (D), and NH Executive Councilor Ruth Griffin. Local leadership attending the reception included Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand, City Manager John Bohenko and Portsmouth City Councilors John Hynes, Harold Whitehouse and Ned Reynolds.

Gov. Lynch focused his comments on the need to maintain a bipartisan atmosphere in Concord. He said that over the last year, both parties have worked together successfully to support the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, provide emergency prescription funding for seniors after problems arose with the government's Medicare Part D program, and turn a budget deficit into a $52 million surplus. He said some of his priorities in the coming year will be to pass the child protection act and the bill raising the high school drop out age to 18.

Congressman Bradley said the nation faces a number of challenges: winning the war on terror, maintaining a strong economy and improving healthcare access and affordability. He added that he and other members of the congressional delegation would be working to maintain the workload at the shipyard. "We're working to make sure some of the work that is being done at Electric Boat gets moved back up here," said the Congressman. "And we'll continue to do that because you guys save money and get boats back to the water faster than anyone. It's going to be one of our top priorities."

Flatbread Pizza Hosts
January After Hours Event
Nearly 200 Guests Discover
Organic Local Eatery

Nearly 200 members and guests enjoyed a casual and cozy evening Jan. 26 thanks to business after hours host Flatbread Pizza on Congress Street in Portsmouth. Throughout the evening the wait staff weaved their way through the wall-to-wall crowd keeping visitors satisfied with a continuous supply of the restaurant's natural, homemade, wood-cooked pizza fare-not to mention a selection of salads and their signature brownies.

Co-owner Jay Gould welcomed the group and talked about his company's philosophy which is to "keep everything real." And that's what they did when they moved into the former department store on Congress Street stripping off the suspended ceiling to reveal the original ornate tin ceiling, and the carpet, to show off the antique maple floors.

Some guests left the event with more than a full belly and warm fuzzies: Steven Wurtz, Camden National Bank; Bruce Jewett, Fuze Communications; and Gary Curtis, Oppenheimer, all won gift certificates good for a meal for two at Flatbread. Jeannie Sangenario, Crystals by the Sea, walked away with the grand prize of the evening--a $205 windfall from the proceeds of the Chamber's 50/50 raffle.


Movers and Shakers

Citizens of Portsmouth and the surrounding Seacoast area can add another 28 acres to an emerald necklace of conservation land thanks to the work of the Seacoast Land Trust. After several years of negotiations and fundraising, the Trust, in cooperation with the City of Portsmouth, will jointly protect a unique wetland, home to an Atlantic White Cedar Community as well as adjacent forestland. The land is near the Rye and Greenland town lines west of Lafayette Road. Funding for land purchase and related project costs came from the New Hampshire Coastal Program ($45,000), the Fuller Foundation ($5,000), the City of Portsmouth ($25,000) and donations from generous private donors (over $10,000). The City of Portsmouth will own the land and the Seacoast Land Trust will hold a conservation easement on the property.
