Our Mission: Promote economic growth of the business community.
President's Message
Think selfies are just for teenagers and attention seekers? Well think again.

Selfies are a great way to give your customers and potential customers a “behind the scenes” look at your business. They're also an effective way of telling your business story, including your company history. (This one is our staff in front of our wall of founders who financially supported the chamber building project in 1998. We're about the embark on a major remodel journey in this very same building!)

Click on this article for the 5 types of selfies you should be taking for your business and posting to your social streams:

Follow us on Facebook  for our collection of "business selfies!"
 
I hope to see you at our chamber events often! We are, as always, better (and stronger) together !!
