Message from the Chamber President & CEO – Kristen Miller

The Chamber is so grateful to be approaching the one-year anniversary of our merger. We took a risk – to step out with faith that businesses needed our help during the biggest economic crisis of our lifetimes.  We are proud of the work that we have done, proud of our progress and proud of our members. We are very hopeful for the future.
One of the core principles of our mission is to represent the business community through our members. If you have not renewed your membership in the new chamber, now is the time.
July 1st marks an important milestone and we are stronger together! Please make sure your membership is up to date so that we can start our second year – working for you – even stronger.
