A note from your Executive Director;
It is The Chamber Team's privilege to serve our business members, our community, volunteers and our leaders by providing resources to create positive outcomes and foster sustainable, long-term growth. Over time we have learned that most often the tools that businesses need today, may not be the tools they need tomorrow - but not to worry! Our Chamber has the flexibility and agility to work with you as your needs change. Whether it is providing referrals, offering advertising opportunities, addressing marketing challenges, providing leadership development opportunities, or troubleshooting ways to grow your business- we can help with it all! We encourage you to get involved. Becoming and staying engaged even a little is certain to help meet your goals. After all, you only get out of something what you put into it. We are certain to have a program or activity that fits your busy schedule.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, would like to meet or if you would like any additional information about our chamber.
