What is a Chamber of Commerce?
It is an organization of members who unite to support growth and prosperity in their community through business and community development. When you join a Chamber of Commerce, you join other members who are interested in pooling resources and ideas for economic development and business growth. You also gain the opportunity to promote your business to other members!
