Local Issues... More Than A Monthly Meeting
"The Local Issue concept is a real gem of the Chamber, and the reason it is so special is because the stakeholders and leaders attend every month: where else could you get to know your school superintendent, city council members, police & fire chief, city department heads, college president, congressional staff, state legislators, mayor, county commissioners, non-profit executives, and many business owners? It is actually true that after a short time, we call each other “friends.”" - Jodie Miller, Town Square Television

Share Your Business With Us By Video
Make your own 15-20 second video and share it with us at the Chamber!

Here's how:

1. Record your video in Landscape mode (horizontally)
2. Record in a quiet place if possible (limit background noise)
3. Message - Hi, my name is ABC with XYZ company. Our company does XYZ. Add in a positive thing/message you are doing during this time and/or a way people can connect with you (website or other contact info).
4. Save the video on a Google drive and share it with Nicole here
(Please note: the video file may be too big to email directly so saving it to a file sharing spot like Google Drive or Dropbox first is helpful to send us a link to download the file itself).
