How To Be There Without Attending
Chambers hear this often:
“I’m just too busy to make any of the events” or “We had someone
who was attending events, but they are no longer here.”
Although the Chamber is much more than just an avenue for networking, we recognize many companies have the need for networking in order to market their products or services. There are many ways the Chamber offers a business the opportunity to stay top of mind with over 1,500 members; many of these are at little or no cost . . .
