It’s such a pleasure to hear from company execs and municipal leaders that business is moving ahead – if not as usual, at least with positive momentum and plenty of optimism for the rest of 2022 and beyond!

The Automotive Sector is certainly ready to roll, as consumers beef up their online research skills and come to the dealerships fully prepared to purchase. You’ll find some great insights from seasoned dealers at Reno Buick GMC Cadillac, Bob Penkhus Motor Company, Champion Chevrolet, and Monaco Ford.

Checking in on the Aloha State, we discover what’s new in Construction from The Building Industry Association of Hawaii and what’s happening on the Retail front from HPM Building Supply. Meanwhile, there is lots to learn from the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools, and Parker School, in particular.

The power of renewables is all the buzz at Toronto-based e-Zinc – this biz is well worth a second look. And kudos to Chemical Dynamics, a third-generation plant nutrient manufacturer finding solutions to support farmers in enhancing food production.

Financially speaking, consumers and communities are in good hands at Alden State Bank, Heritage Bank

Tioga State Bank, and Dover Federal Credit Union. Lessons learned through the pandemic have brought advancements in online banking to the forefront, while relationships with existing customers and members remain as close as ever, and wonderful new relationships have been formed.

Blue sky thinking is the perfect tonic in these uncertain times, and recent infrastructure improvements at our five featured regional airports have paved the way for increasing business and pleasure flights. Much has been happening at Clintonville Municipal Airport, Dunsmuir Municipal-Mott Airport, Mena Intermountain Municipal Airport, Page Municipal Airport, and Yakima Air Terminal-McAllister Field – and exciting plans are on each of their rosters for the future!

No matter your interest, there’s sure to be something to inspire you in this month’s issue of BVM North America.  Be well my friends, keep smiling, and enjoy the read!
