In order to continue the positive growth within our organization, the Chamber relies on a fantastic team of volunteers to help keep things running smoothly. Our "Task Teams" work behind the scenes to make sure our members are receiving meaningful benefits, our events are well-run, and our region is getting the attention it deserves.
The Chamber holds numerous events throughout the year. Some are in the form of fundraisers that help support the mission of our organization, while others, such as our networking and "Meet the Chamber" events, are designed to benefit our members and the community in an immediate and direct way. Our current major events include:
