Note from the Director
Good afternoon,
 
Our chamber member members have been busy this past month! It has been wonderful to see everyone taking advantage of the beautiful weather and growing their businesses!

Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!

I tried to make it to nearly all of the events that have been happening, if I did not make it to your please do not take it personally. It was a busy July and try as I may to attend everything I need a little rest to continue to make great things happen with the chamber itself. 

Be sure to keep any events, specials, promotions, etc. coming my way to share. I love hearing what our chamber members are up to.

We still have openings on our board of directors. Click here for the application.   2018 Board Member Application  I would love to have you join us!

Remember that if you have any questions or concerns about something going on with the chamber please do not hesitate to reach out. We can only fix the things we are aware of. 

That being said over the past year our chamber members have been nothing short of amazing! Everyone has opened their hearts and minds to new ideas,and lots of changes. Because of that the chamber is growing both in membership, viability and word of mouth. 

All I can say is thank you. Keep being AMAZING!

Sincerely, 
Cassandra Austin
Executive Director
