POUGHKEEPSIE (March 23) - The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce has been promoting Think Local First for 10 years in the Hudson Valley. It has grown into a community consciousness and promotes pride in our hometown.

The logo is reminiscent of the original shopping bag, but includes a new tag with the hashtag #iTLF. The refreshed slogan— ‘Shop here. Play here. Click here. Stay here. Think Local First.’ — is also included in the logo design.

The Chamber is asking the community, “How do you Think Local First?”

“We were thrilled that (The Chamber) called on us to help develop the initial Think Local First campaign 10 years ago. They did an amazing job of bringing the concept to life and growing it into an amazing program that spanned the entire region,” said Steve Mayhew, president of Momentum Advertising & Design. “We’re thankful they have once again called upon us to help enhance the program as it enters its second decade of success!”

Martha Mora also works full-time as a housekeeper at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern. Her shift at Good Samaritan usually starts at 7 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. From there, Mora heads to the restaurant to work every day.

“Martha’s hard work and dedication are inspirational,” Neuhaus said. “It is clear that she takes pride in everything she does. I enjoyed having an opportunity to meet Martha and her hard-working family. They are really close and I know they will be successful. I’m certainly rooting for them.”

Neuhaus was joined at El Mariachi by Deputy County Executive Wayne Booth, Angel Figueroa, second vice president of Latinos Unidos of the Hudson Valley, and Nolly Climes, a Latinos Unidos volunteer and program director of Rehabilitation Support Services (RSS).

“I am pleased that the County Executive is reaching out to the Latino community with this program,” Figueroa said. “We appreciate him recognizing all of Martha’s hard work and determination. It means a lot to all of us and we look forward to collaborating with Mr. Neuhaus in the future.”

Whether you are a large firm or a smaller family operation, Neuhaus invites new businesses in Orange County to contact his office to schedule a time for him to visit your establishment as part of the “Open for Business” program. He will take a picture with the owner(s) and post it on his Facebook page to help promote the business.

The EXPO, in its 14th year, featured more than 180 exhibitors, “experience stations” and “Ask the Expert” booths. Exhibit spaces were buzzing with business leaders and decision makers, cementing the EXPO’s status as the most influential business-to-business trade show in the Hudson Valley.

Visitors mingled with representatives of leading brands in education, healthcare, hospitality, insurance, real estate, banking, not-for-profits, law, marketing and more. Many carried premium items ranging from stress balls and pens to lint brushes and towels. And when they weren’t milling about the booths, attendees could be seen sampling pulled pork, Italian ices and other delicacies from the ample food stations.

Keynote speaker Lorraine Santoli, the former Director of Corporate Synergy for The Walt Disney Company, kicked off this year’s EXPO with a passionate address about the importance of collaboration among teams within an organization. She told the audience she understands the negative connotation tied to synergy in the workplace, but she also knows that developing synergy among teams can be a springboard to tremendous success.

“Done well, synergy works,” said Santoli, who offered anecdotes detailing wildly successful marketing campaigns she developed around Disney favorites Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. “You will create marketing magic, because it’s all about teamwork. Synergy support must start at the top and work on all levels. And it should be fun, because something that is fun is a better motivator.”

Socially responsible investment advisors open New Paltz office

NEW PALTZ (March 7) -  With a growing number of investors demanding “green” and other socially responsible investment options, two financial advisors with a combined 40 years of financial advisory experience recently opened SRI Investing LLC in New Paltz, NY in order to serve a growing list of clients in upstate New York and the New England region. SRI Investing—which stands for “Sustainable, Responsible & Impact” Investing—is believed to be the first investment firm solely devoted to socially responsible investments to open in the Mid-Hudson Valley. 

SRI Investing is a collaboration of Gary Matthews, PhD CPA/PFS, and Amy Pender. Matthews, who began his career in finance as a CPA and tax consultant in 1979, earned a PhD in social ethics in an effort to find a “better way of doing business.”  Pender began her career as an educator. She put her teaching skills to use aiding non-profit organizations with fundraising and mission-driven work that sought to make the world a better place.

“Our clients are looking for an advisor who can help them do something important and meaningful with their money,” said Matthews.

Pender added: “Our goal in launching SRI Investing was to provide an SRI advisory resource that contrasts the very generic approach to ethical and impact investing provided by most mainstream advisors. We take the time to truly understand each client’s values as well as their risk tolerance, and we develop portfolios that are in sync with both sets of criteria.”

Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union, Bridgeway Federal Credit Union merger approved

KINGSTON (February 10) - Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union (MHV) received official approval from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) to merge with Bridgeway Federal Credit Union (BFCU). The merger was effective as of January 31, 2016 with MHV as the surviving credit union.

As part of a growing trend for both credit unions and banks, mergers are becoming increasingly common as industry competition ramps up. According to the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), between 2003 and 2012, there were 2,462 credit union mergers. During this period, the total number of credit unions declined from 9,369 to 6,812, or 27 percent.

Wayne Winkler, MHV President & CEO states “Smaller financial institutions are increasingly challenged by regulation and economic conditions. This merger aligns two strong, local organizations with common philosophies to provide the combined membership with tremendous value.”

With the merger, BFCU’s $82 million in assets will be assumed by MHV. BFCU has a membership base of approximately 11,000 members and 3 branch locations in Dutchess County including Poughkeepsie, LaGrange and Fishkill. Both credit unions have a community charter that serves the tri-county area of Ulster, Dutchess and Orange.

“We can assure Bridgeway FCU members that they will be afforded convenient service and a smooth transition to MHV,” said Winkler.
