Coaching by  Margo Bush

Growing your own business can be challenging, doing it alone can be even more difficult. Our program was designed to help business owners, leaders, and entrepreneurs grow a thriving organization. We'll help you think strategically about your business and get results. Why do business alone when you can partner with a trusted advisor?

You don't have to be a Chamber member to attend -- all are welcome! Please invite your business colleagues who might be interested in the Collinsville Chamber or in hearing, Margo Bush speak.

Turkey Bingo 2019
Mark your calendar for November 16!  We will be hosting our 6th annual Turkey Bingo event in downtown Collinsville. This event serves as a fundraiser for the Chamber, replenishing our funds and allowing us to work hard for our members and for Collinsville. We know that November might not yet be on your radar, but it's time for us to start planning!

We want our prizes this year to be bigger and better than ever and we need your help! If you own a local business, would you please consider donating an item to serve as a prize? Some of our most popular prizes are gift cards, which also serve as a way to get new people into your business. Please contact Carri at the office if you'd like to donate an item. Thanks so much, Collinsville!
