A Message from Chamber President & CEO
On Thursday we successfully rolled out the new member portal called ChamberMaster to all of our Members. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and our staff is ready to assist any member who may need assistance logging in or navigating through the new system. If you did not receive an invitation to create a login, please contact me at [email protected]. More information and training will be rolled out in the coming weeks and months as we add features and functionality.

Here's what a few of our members have to say about the new portal:

"This is the BEST change ever...Thanks for putting it into our own hands and for online billing!" - Victoria C.

"ChamberMaster is a big upgrade for the members, it provides ease of use and great new features. Members should definitely take advantage of the new system to make updates to all your information and see everything it has to offer.” - Matt R.

Summer is here in full force so enjoy everything this region has to offer and support your local businesses.
