Advocacy – Working for a Healthy Business Environment

Advocacy is the heart and soul of Chamber activity. Your Chamber takes a stand on local, regional and national issues that affect business. It provides active support to local businesses and lobbies for their benefit. Every year, we meet with the local politicians, to pass along the concerns of the business community and press for change. We issue news releases on business concerns that are distributed to local media outlets and through our social media sites, reaching thousands of people.

Networking – Expand Your Business Contacts

‘Networking’ is one of the most important factors in business success. The Chamber hosts many business and social functions that provide the opportunity to network. These networking events allow you to expand your business and social contacts.
