A SPECIAL BLOG POST: 
A BITTERSWEET FAREWELL
by Jenna Daniel
I am sad to say that this is my last week as an employee of the Chamber. While my time here was shorter than expected, it has certainly been an experience that I will cherish forever.
 
Getting to know all of the members and their businesses was one of my favorite aspects of working for the Chamber. The relationships I have built with so many of you will carry on long past my departure, and I am grateful that the Chamber brought me to so many awesome people.

MEMBER BENEFIT OF THE WEEK:  
OFFICE DEPOT: Office Supplies - Members save up to 45% on 500+ items that Chamber members purchase most often.
