A Message From Our President & CEO
By Colleen DePasquale
Our goal this year is to finish out our 3 year strategic plan, part of the plan is to tell our story better – making sure that you, our members, are “in the know” about what we are working on at the Chamber. Each month, our newsletter will bring you news, information or updates from me or another member.
