Collinsville Chamber of Commerce July 2018 Newsletter
July Membership Luncheon

In lieu of the July Membership Luncheon, the Chamber hosts an Emplo yee Appreciation Cookout each July for City of Collinsville and Tulsa County employees who work in the Collinsville area. It's a small token of our appreciation for everything they do for this community all year long.

Our next Membership Luncheon will take place Thursday, August 2nd. Stay tuned for more information on how we are revamping our luncheons, including a new location and additional networking opportunities! 
Advocating for You
One aspect of what we do for our members is to get involved in legislative advocacy. While you are working on your individual businesses, we are keeping an eye on legislative affairs that affect your businesses and our community. 

Beginning this month, our Chamber Manager will join several task forces at the Tulsa Regional Chamber that works to identify problems and craft solutions on behalf of local businesses and entrepreneurs. She will be a voice for Collinsville businesses while advocating at local, state, and federal levels. But she can't do it without you! We need to know what you, as business owners, are most concerned about. What changes are you needing? How can we advocate on your behalf?  

Please email megan@collinsvillechamber.org or call 918-371-4703 with any feedback or to schedule a meeting.
