President’s Message

Hello and Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
My name is Julie Ann Martin. I am honored to be your 2017 Chamber of Commerce President.
I have lived in the Montrose area for the over 50 years! Can you tell I love this town? I’m so excited to lead the Board of Directors and to play such a big part in this community. I am a full time Realtor with Dilbeck Real Estate, a full time mom to a teenage son and l love spending time with my family and friends. I feel lucky to be in this quaint town surrounded by these beautiful Foothill and Verdugo mountains. Living here so long I have experience and see myself as an authority with the real estate market here in Montrose.
My vision for the year is Presence. I am a believer that a strong presence is essential when joining together in a small community. We as a chamber work together as a team to bring in new ideas, fun events, networking and business to our local shops and restaurants.
Social media is one of our newest ways to engage with the community and to bring additional value to our chamber members. Providing unique events, business mixers and introducing new trends is just the beginning of what we can do in our Chamber of Commerce. Participation on all parts will bring everyone closer and the ability to help one another.
I want to bring value to you as a member. Your thoughts and ideas are always welcome. We have an open door policy here. Questions or concerns can come up anytime and we are here to help. Promoting businesses is just one way we are able to help others succeed, highlight what you have to offer and bring you more business.

Please feel free to stop by the Chamber offices to visit if you are in the neighborhood. You can also e-mail me at
