From the Director...

The Small Business Committee has come up with a calendar of promotional events for the year. I have already visited with some of you, and will be reaching out to the rest of the business community in the upcoming weeks. I hope to have businesses commit to participation at the beginning of the year in the events they are interested in so we can promote them early and often.


I will also be reaching out to my members in the next for donations, prizes, and sponsorship for all of the events. That way you know at the beginning of the year what you will be spending and the Chamber will only be asking for support
