As the 2019 Chair, Jeff Childs, senior advisor for SVN/Rankin Company, agrees that with Aguirre poised for growth, the chamber is in good hands.
“Logan does a wonderful job of helping others see a positive future for their businesses and our community,” Childs said in an email. “Logan always leads with a smile on her face and a message that inspires you to take positive action to accomplish the goal. Her vision for the community is one that we can all support. I am grateful to have served with her on the Chamber's executive committee and know that, as she moves towards the Chairmanship, great things are in her future and ours.”
Echoing the voice of his peers, Matt Morrow, president of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, says Aguirre is an articulate spokesperson with a quick mind and remarkable instincts. He said she is a fierce advocate for business and for the Springfield region, and that she understands the varied needs and challenges facing small and large businesses, and how those translate to building a better community and region.
With two women at the helm of the board of directors, Robeson says the future is bright for the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. “I am honored to serve as Chairman of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce in 2020 as we begin our second century of service,” Robeson said in an email. “I believe the community is ready to do some really extraordinary things and being a part of that planning and execution is very exciting for me.”
