March / April 2017
Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce
March / April Chamber Chat
We are gearing up for Spring here at the Chamber and that means out with the old and in with the new! Consider adding the following to your spring cleaning list:  
  • Update your rack cards and brochures here at the Chamber Office.
  • Attend a Chambermaster session.  The next one is on April 17.
  • Attend a ribbon cutting, a business-after-hours or ambassador meeting in 2017.

February and March brought opportunities to you, our members, to have your voice heard.  A training session with the Department of Labor and a luncheon with the Mayor of Vicksburg and President of the Warren County Board of Supervisors both provided networking and collaboration.   We are excited for the months ahead! Thank you for your support and for your membership!

Let's have a great Spring in 2017!
