Membership Drive 2020 – 20 New Members by the Start of 2020!
Any new members joining in December will get all the regular chamber benefits PLUS a membership drive exclusive perk :
a percentage of each NEW membership fee paid by the end of the year (2019) will be donated in their name to a Chamber Charity of their choice.

Any current members that recruit a new member will be entered into prize drawings and recognized in our Weekly Update. 

One of the main goals of the Chamber of Commerce is to create a community where people want to live, work and play. We do this by promoting business retention and growth; working with local, state and federal elected officials on issues from taxation to transportation to legislation; and partnering with local non profits which provide a key role in enriching our community.
