Since becoming a Chamber member several years ago, I have first-hand experienced how valuable its service has been. It has offered me the opportunity to be inducted into the Future Five by its program to recognize upcoming, involved community and business leaders. The monthly Chamber newsletter keeps me informed on new businesses opening in our area as well so I may recognize and support them, and it also provides updates as to the status of existing businesses. Networking events, such as Business After Hours, keep me socially connected with my industry peers and provides an opportunity to form new relationships & the environment to get to know other business leaders in our community.
