Myers Mortuaries is now a Cornerstone partner at the Ogden-Weber Chamber of Commerce, joining America First Credit Union in the highest partnership level. This transition from Keystone to Cornerstone enables Myers Mortuaries to further impact the Chamber and the community.
Shaun Myers, CEO, said, “We’re very excited about becoming a Cornerstone partner and seeing what we can accomplish with the Chamber and future businesses. We’re very humbled.”
Marcus Myers, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, added, “We are honored to carry on the traditions of my father and grandfather in giving back to the community. It is a calling.”
As a Cornerstone partner, Shaun said Myers Mortuaries aims “to continue playing an integral role in the Chamber and now step up even more to help businesses understand how important and impactful it is to be an engaged Chamber member.”
Myers Mortuaries has been a Chamber member since 1951. Richard Myers was very involved with the Chamber. He instituted a tradition of supporting local businesses.
That involvement was key to Myers Mortuaries’ transition to a Cornerstone level. Myers Mortuaries became a Gold member in 2015 and took the next step as a Keystone partner in 2016. “This partnership level is the next step of progression in helping grow business prosperity in the northern Utah region. The Chamber’s mission is to help businesses succeed here in Ogden-Weber. That’s what we want as well — businesses helping businesses,” Marcus said. “We realized early on that we could strengthen and magnify business in the region as a Cornerstone partner.”
“We wanted to help build the Chamber itself and especially help new businesses that are coming in…so that they can get engaged quickly in the community. It’s not just about coming in and running a business, but strengthening your business as part of the Chamber business community,” Marcus explained. “The people that you meet, the leadership and education opportunities, operational assistance, company promotions…it’s amazing all the different things the Chamber provides. It’s a very comprehensive organization.”
Marcus noted Chamber efforts such as the Board of Governors, Women in Business Committee, Northern Utah Business (Nubiz), Early B.I.R.D. Business Primer and Business After Hours. “The Chamber is moving in a great direction,” Marcus said.
Chamber President and CEO, Chuck Leonhardt said, “Myers Mortuaries is one of those organizations that is all in. They get involved at their core. It’s who they are. They get engaged in business programming, events, community action initiatives, committee work, and the list goes on. When other businesses need help, you can count on Myers Mortuaries to be there. They see the vision of what our business climate is moving toward, and they are leading out. They are leaders in their business and in the community."
