Forest Hills Chamber President
I’m Leslie Brown, President of the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce. It is my pleasure to serve as chamber president, to have owned a business in Forest Hills and to be a life-long resident here. I understand what it is like to run your own company and I know what the challenges that being self-employed entails. My mother opened a children’s clothing store in the 1980’s selling unique often handmade clothing. The store turned into a second generation owned business when I became involved in the 1990’s. We sold our store in early 2004 and I am proud to say that today it is still a family run children’s store on Austin Street! Through the decades of being in business I watched generations grow and I really felt part of the families here. And I still do today.
The Forest Hills Chamber offers the opportunity to network with over 230 Forest Hills based business owners and to get to know the people living and working in our community. I think of our members as being part of the fabric of Forest Hills and what I call the 3 C’S: Commerce, Community & Culture. Commerce makes the community thrive and culture brings the community together.
