A Word from the President

Last year the Chamber leadership made the decision to invest in a new website and new software to assist in providing more value to our members. We have been working on these updates and are very close to rolling them out for use. When this new technology goes online, you will have access to many features you didn't have before. In the near future, we will be providing you with the information you will need to access and utilize these features. Be on the look out for the rollout announcement and we hope you will be pleased with the new features of the technology.

The Small groups give everyone a chance to find out about the folks in their rooms and what they are looking for in a referral or contact

Then we will go back to the main room and go into another room with different folks

The last one we did was awesome and we learned how to help our fellow business partners grow their business and
