HUGE Shout Out to Advent Medical Group, who invited Alternative Behavioral Care to join the Chamber and take advantage of all the great programming and networking available.  

Because Alternative Behavioral Care recently joined the Chamber, Advent Medical Group chose to receive a $50 reduction in their membership dues for 2017!

Who do you do business with that isn't a member of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce??
  Everyone wins in this new innovative program – the new member wins by receiving all the benefits of membership, the referring member wins by being rewarded, other members win through business gained from the purchase of gift cards and donations, and the Chamber wins with more members and a stronger voice.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), in collaboration with their regional planning partners, East-West Gateway Council of Governments (EWGCOG) and Metro has embarked on a unique endeavor to develop a transportation vision of the I-70 corridor. The study area is from just west of the I-70/I-64 interchange in Wentzville and continues through the New Mississippi River Bridge complex to the end of the express lanes in downtown St. Louis City.

The study area is densely developed with a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial land uses. The study is being managed by MoDOT and is being closely coordinated with EWGCOG and Metro and is drawing on past regional transportation plans.
