"ColumbUS Chamber of Commerce"

Don DePerro

President & CEO 

Don DePerro, President and CEO of the Columbus Chamber, previously served as president and publisher of Columbus Business First where he enjoyed a newspaper career that spanned over 30 years. Don will share his vision for the Chamber.  “Columbus is a dynamic city filled with bright and vibrant businesses. Our business community needs a town center – a meeting place – and that’s what the Columbus Chamber of Commerce will provide,” said DePerro.  

He has been named the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Media Advocate of the Year for the state of Florida and has received six American City Eagle Awards for Excellence – the highest honor awarded to American City associates – as both an editor and publisher. In addition to his professional accomplishments, Don remains heavily involved in countless community initiatives. Don and his wife Lia have three children, including one Buckeye, and live in Dublin, Ohio.

ROTARIANS AND FAMILIES

 The following members and their families need your cares, concerns and prayers.

We learned recently that Rotarian John Stegman passed away late last December.  He had been a member for nearly 30 years.  John was born and raised in Peru, Indiana, son of the late John and Mildred Stegman. Also preceded in death by his brother Samuel Stegman. John was a Naval Officer, held Market and General Management Manager Positions in industry, and after earning a Ph.D., taught MBA candidates in OSU's Fisher College of Business. He is a member of Broad Street Presbyterian Church, Columbus Rotary Club, The Army Navy Club in Washington, D.C., The Columbus Maennerchor, and the Faculty Club at The Ohio State University. He was local, state, and region (Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware) President of the Navy League of the U.S. He was also the National Chairman of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps.

HERE HE GOES AGAIN - MT EVEREST

Our own John O'Meara is back in Nepal on his quest to summit Mt. Everest.  He took a club flag with him so has an excused absence(s) for the next several months.  If you would like to follow John and his team's journey you can find it here; www.mountainguides.com 


"Down at Base Camp, our IMG climbers are resting and taking a few day hikes. Energy is high, and we are looking for a summit window. They have worked very hard to put themselves in position to summit, and we are all very hopeful that we will get our shot at the summit of Mount Everest in the coming days!"
