A NOTE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Thankful is the word of the month for the Chamber. With members like you, we are able to support our business community in the Saranac Lake area as well as foster growth and positive change. Only through your support can we continue to assist important community initiatives and lead the way for business.
At your Chamber we strive to provide what you need to succeed. Your Chamber Membership extends to all of your employees, so not only can you be involved, but all your staff can be involved in the Chamber. Whether you choose to take advantage of our 5:01 Connect Series , take part in one of our free Green Side of Business training seminars, post a member 2 member deal online, sponsor an event, or serve on a committee, your engagement will help you develop your business and make valuable connections.
At your Chamber, we work hard to provide real benefits for you and your employees, and we hope you will continue to join us in making the Saranac Lake Area a great place to live, work and play. Remember, membership in the Chamber is an investment in your community and in the Saranac Lake Area's future.
 
We thank you for being an integral part of that future!
