We are pleased to share the following testimonials from chamber members as examples of the positive impact the chamber has on member’s businesses.

“As a long-standing county organization, the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in both my personal and professional development. From my initial experience attending their Leadership Columbia/Greene program through countless educational and networking events, I appreciate all that the Chamber has to offer. As the Chamber continues to evolve and enhance its offerings, they have become a regular business resource that I would certainly recommend as our membership is one of the best return on investment opportunities a business can make!”
Erik A. Larsen
Vice President of Operations

“I have been involved in our local Chamber of Commerce since I began my insurance career in 1987. The Chamber has always been there for us—networking, business advocacy, business-to-business events as well. I am proud to chair this organization.”

“Accepting an award on behalf of my 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, that’s what the chamber is really about.”
