“Accepting an award on behalf of our company, from President Colby, for over 50 years in business was my first experience with the Chamber. After attending a few more events it became pretty clear to me how important the Chamber is, not only for my own professional development but also the overall betterment of the county. From networking opportunities, to business advocacy, to community engagement and development…the Chamber is a driving force in the area. I am both proud and honored to now sit on the Board of Directors and act as a guide for this driving force. The overall success of our county is integral to all of our success and that’s what the Chamber is really about.”
