Our members serve a vital role in the operations of the Chamber. The Annual Dinner Meeting and Election of Board of Directors is a great way to ensure your voice is heard, we want to hear from you!
*We are bringing back awards! It is so exciting to be able to recognize and highlight our Member Businesses!
*White Linen Catering will be providing an array of hors d'oeuvres and desserts to make it easy to mingle while getting some delicious bites in!
