We’re excited to support this year’s National Small Business Week, May 5-May 11, by participating in the second annual Clash of the Chambers, a community business-focused competition sponsored by Excelerate America.

This fun game will have us going head-to-head with chambers nationwide to see who can visit the most local enterprises of varying stages as noted on the official Clash Gameboard. From an entrepreneur just opening their doors to a long-standing local go-to, we can’t wait to promote and celebrate our amazing community.

Nominate a small business, and follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with #ChamberClash2019 #CoronaChamber and #ImHere, and help us come out victorious! (We will earn an extra point for every additional shared post—score!) You can win a prize pack valued at $500! See "how to participate" for details!
