“Connecting with Commuters” by John Horner, President & CEO One of the challenges and opportunities for Morgan Hill businesses and organizations is finding effective ways to connect with the thousands of professionals who live in our community but head out of town every morning to get to work. Recently we participated in the Silicon Valley Chambers Business Expo in Santa Clara (which was a terrific event by the way) at which both Rich Firato and I were surprised how many people approached us to ask questions about Morgan Hill - because they live here. These folks work to our North, but then come home every night to Morgan Hill. Most of them had very little knowledge about what is going on with entertainment, development and job prospects in Morgan Hill. The good news in this is that we have an abundance of very talented people across a wide range of skills and industries living among us. The challenge is how to make sure they know about opportunities for fun like the Friday Night Music Series, opportunities to get great products and services at local businesses, opportunities to have a voice in how the community continues to evolve through civic engagement, and opportunities to ditch the commute and grab one of the fascinating job opportunities within Morgan Hill. The majority of our local companies continue to prosper and expand, and they need the right talent to do so. Advertising wise, the Chamber of Commerce continues to allocate an increasing proportion of our advertising for major events like the Taste of Morgan Hill and Friday Night Music to social networking platforms like Facebook. We do know that many commuters use Facebook to connect to their family, friends and community and that makes it a good platform for reaching them. If your consumer facing business activities are not using these kinds of platforms, you might be missing out. Meanwhile, local print and electronic media continue to be an important piece of the advertising puzzle as well. Finally, as Chamber Members you have a terrific opportunity to get your business in front of these commuters by participating in the Friday Night Music Series. This is one event which runs all summer long and draws many of those commuters in as they end the work week ready to kick back and let off a little steam.

Leadership Morgan Hill Class of 2015 Sets Ambitious Goal to Raise $25,000 for Stage Lighting System for Friday Night Music Series in June The Leadership Morgan Hill Class of 2015 has moved into high gear with ambitious plans to raise $25,000 for a permanent, state-of-the-art stage lighting system for the Downtown Amphitheater at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center. Already, we’re nearly halfway to our goal, thanks to the generosity of early sponsors and donors, the hospitality of local restaurants, and the support of Morgan Hill residents! Among the criteria for each Leadership Morgan Hill class project is that it deliver tangible value to the community. That’s why our “Bright Idea” project has been embraced enthusiastically by the Chamber of Commerce, City of Morgan Hill and Leadership Morgan Hill Board. “This project is fantastic for our town,” says Rich Firato, Board Chair of the Chamber, which hosts the Friday Night Music Series. “It will bring an upscale experience to concert goers and performers for nighttime events at the amphitheater. Plus, it will streamline production of our live music program this summer, since we’ll no longer have the hassle of setting up and taking down temporary lighting each week.” Contributions at any level to the “Bright Idea” project by individuals, families, local businesses and civic groups will be pivotal to fulfilling our team’s “stretch goal” to reach our $25,000 target for installation early in Friday Night Music Series season, which kicks off on June 5. Recognition opportunities are available at the Bronze ($500-999), Silver ($1,000-2499), Gold ($2,5004,999) and Platinum ($5,000-plus) levels. Sponsors at every level will be featured in online, print, social media and event promotions throughout the fundraising campaign, and during the Friday Night Music Series. We’re incredibly grateful to the Persing Family for becoming our very first Platinum-level sponsor with their generous donation of $5,000. Bubbles Wine Bar has also come on board as a Gold sponsor, following successful kickoff fundraisers held to raise awareness and gather support for the project. In April, the Class of 2015 held two more family-friendly fundraisers at Jimmy P’s Pizza Factory (formerly Dutchman’s Pizza) and Mooyah. What’s next on the calendar? Our Silicon Valley Gives 2015 24-hour online day of giving, May 5, Midnight-11:59 p.m. You can support our “Bright Idea” project with a donation of $10 or more at: http://svgives.razoo.com/story/Leadership-Morgan-Hill-Class-Of-2015-Bright-Idea-Project Keep an eye out for upcoming events at http://www.leadershipmorganhill.org/our-bright-idea-events and “like” us on Facebook to track our progress at https://www.facebook.com/pages/LMH-Class-of-2015-BrightIdea-Project/992701364075117 For more information, visit http://www.leadershipmorganhill.org/about-the-lmh-class-of-2015-project or contact [email protected] Page 9
