and committees. The board of directors
approves all activities and funding for all Chamber programs and
Each year a program of
work is implemented and various responsibilities are delegated

Why Should You Be A
Active membership in
your chamber carries with it a sense of accomplishment and pride
of satisfaction from the knowledge that you are doing your share
of an important job for the community.
Although everyone in the community benefits from the work of the
Chamber, you can accept these benefits with pride ONLY if you
have had a part in bringing them about.
A great way to build your business is by helping to build your
community. Your personal sacrifice
ensures your personal rewards in the community.
