Happy Holidays!
We are grateful for the continued support of our members and investors! Without you, we could not accomplish all that we are able to do for our business community. This past year, we were able to develop new programs, go deeper on initiatives, and spearhead collaborative projects that are making a real impact in our community!

Special thanks to all who came out to our Holiday Party last week! Check out our Holiday Party photos on Facebook

Please note, our offices will be closed DEC. 25 - JAN. 1
Enjoy your holidays and we'll see you next year!
