We're Moving Locations!

To commemorate our 130th year, Your Chamber has undergone some important changes. From adapting to virtual programming, to an entire rebranding, and now...a new location.  

We’re excited to announce that we are officially heading out of our 1101 Broadway offices, into a fantastic new location that will serve our members in more modern ways. It's expected that we outgrew our office of nearly 20 years, as we look forward to creating a way in which our members can join us in our efforts to bring the business community together. From a remote-work area within the building, to conference rooms adaptable for each of our members, our expectation is that this new location will serve us as much as it will serve you.  

As we refine our plans, we are hopeful that we will be settled into a new building this Fall. Until then, our regular  contact information  (phone and email) will keep you in direct contact with us as our team will be working from remote offices for the time-being. Our events and programming, which have morphed in response to COVID-19 restrictions, will continue virtually until we are able to gather once again.
