Well This is Awkward...

We can't remember the last time we didn't start off a newsletter by welcoming a new member! It's weird, but it's ok! We've already welcomed 31 new Chamber members this year which we're very happy about. We continue to see member renewals for 2022-2023 coming in every day, so thank you to our current members who continue their membership and their support of our programs and efforts here in Belfast and Waldo County.

How do you think we're doing? Are we meeting your needs as a Chamber? Do you have questions for us? It's why we're here! We always welcome your feedback. You can also give us a review on Google or on our Facebook page.
