Miki Roth, The Group Real Estate

October 2010 - Featured Monthly Investor

Miki Roth, with the Group Real Estate, is captain of the Loveland Chamber of Commerce cheer squad. Her energy, commitment to the organization and drive to help achieve its mission, are infectious.

Whether it is attending Chamber events including Business After Hours, maintaining a clear position among the Chamber’s leadership team with her involvement as board secretary or supporting some of the Chamber’s largest fundraising programs as chair of the Annual Dinner committee and Corn Eating Contest chair for Loveland’s largest festival, the Old Fashioned Corn Roast Festival, Roth is an integral part of the Chamber and never turns down an opportunity to show her support and get others on the Chamber’s bandwagon.

Brian Willms, president/CEO of the Chamber is a key supporter. “Miki is one of the most engaged board members we have. She is always quick to lend an ear or give guidance when asked by me. She is always one of the first to volunteer her assistance on a wide variety of opportunities and committees to enhance and grow the Chamber and its mission. Miki is a prime example of someone who has taken advantage of their Chamber investment by getting involved to build relationships within the business community and taking an active role in the direction of the Chamber to benefit the community as a whole.”

Since Jan. 2010, Roth has served on the board executive committee as secretary where she is responsible for tracking the minutes for the board along with evaluating and providing coaching on the board’s ability to follow its governing policies. She gives an update at the end of each board meeting. Roth was previously an ex-officio on the board.

Roth’s go-get-‘em attitude has contributed greatly to key Chamber events including its 2010 Annual Dinner and the Annual Corn Roast Festival. There is no limit to the creativity and ideas brought forth by Roth to create effective and captivating events for both Loveland Chamber investors and the community. Her ability to manage the details has ensured continued success of both events and the programs that she contributes to.

“Miki is one of the most upbeat people I know and is always ready to take on a challenge. On top of her busy real estate life she always finds time to help out with all types of events and projects at the Chamber and does it with a smile,” said Jim Worthen, director of investor relations with the Loveland Chamber. “Miki is fun to work with and always has great ideas to make every project more exciting and run smoother for us all.”

Hear it From Miki: Q: How have you capitalized on your Loveland Chamber investment and what has it brought you? I try to be as involved as I can in committees and events. The networking that is provided by Chamber events is a huge, ongoing advantage for business men and women. It is important to "stay in the flow" with people. Although I advertise regularly in my business, the exposure, networking and opportunities I gain from Chamber Membership is probably as valuable, if not more valuable!

Q: What Chamber events, committees etc. do you find the most valuable? I love the annual Investor's Meeting/Event. That is the top networking event and a great opportunity to have some fun as well! I also like working on the Corn Roast Festival committee. Another chance to meet lots of people while you are having fun!

Q: What would you say to someone considering Chamber investment? The #1 way to increase your business is to make contact with people. The Chamber provides numerous opportunities to interact with people and establish personal relationships that have the chance to culminate in business relationships as well. You also have opportunities to become involved in other committees, etc. involved in Economic Development, Political Issues, and other agendas that affect our businesses. There are many programs and events that give you the opportunity to increase your knowledge, your skills, and your relationships with other business members.

Q: What has been the top benefit to you for your chamber involvement? The different relationships and friendships I have built as a Chamber member is extremely rewarding both personally and professionally.

Q*: Which events will we see you in October?*

October is a busy month for everyone, but I hope to attend the Business After Hours, possibly some Ribbon Cuttings for new members. I would really like to get back to the networking breakfast with the Leads Group, of which the Chamber has several. (I do try to contribute to the gift bags for the Ribbon Cuttings, as well as to the Leadership Loveland and Valentine Volunteers give-away).
