The Chamber currently has over 160 business members that financially support a professionally staffed office. The staff helps carry out the goals and objectives set each year by the members. The elected Board of Directors governs the staff. Committees and task forces accomplish local goals, while the staff conducts the business of the organization and works on goals requiring full-time attention.
How Does The Chamber Work?
An excellent Chamber of Commerce means the difference between a stagnant town and a thriving community. The majority of economic development progress, business retention and expansion success, quality of life solutions, and many other positive growth elements come directly from Chamber activity and participation.
Why Is It Important To Have An Active Chamber?
It takes time, money, and people to make a difference in any community. From quality of life to business advocacy, the Chamber plays a vital role in the strength of our community. Without the investment of our members, the Chamber would not be able to do its job.
