The Chamber Business Economic Development Committee believes that a key pillar of economic development in our community is to promote the start-up and expansion of local and small businesses, in addition to the typical focus on recruitment and relocation of larger manufacturing or related businesses that employ large numbers of people. Most business growth occurs in smaller businesses in our community.

To achieve this vision, the business community must promote the spirit of "entrepreneurship" among aspiring business owners in order to create and add, as little as "one job at a time" to the economic base of our community.

With this Vision in mind, the committee has implemented the Business Start-Up Competition to encourage and reward financially, those prospective business owners who choose to start a business in our community. Learn more here.
