The new-look Chamber Connection in September

We asked for your opinions and you responded. We've spent a few weeks revamping and retooling the weekly newsletter and will soon unveil the changes. We'll keep the things you said you enjoyed, regular updates on new businesses and projects around Ross County, as well as add some regular features on our members, volunteer opportunities, and more.  And, best of all, we're going to update the design and feel of it to best serve our members.
A note from the desk of CRCC President and CEO Mike Throne:

It's a good question. What exactly does a Chamber of Commerce do?
There are the easy things - ribbon cutting, annual meeting, the golf outing, etc. - but there's more to a Chamber than just planning events, so here are a few of the essential things that we do regularly that help business.
We connect businesses.
One of the biggest things we do is create an atmosphere for businesses to meet and do business together. We host a variety of events that help companies identify potential partners and capitalize on those opportunities to grow their business - and sometimes, both businesses grow as a result. Bring your business cards and other resources to our Business After Business events, sponsor an event or a Lunch and Learn session, or ask Bobbi, Phillip, or myself to help you make some connections.
