How we work?
The policies and programs of the Chamber are determined by the Board of Directors, who in-turn, are elected by the membership.
Who Finances the Chamber?
The Chamber is a ‘business,’ which incurs operation costs and expenses similar to any other type of business. Those expenses are apportioned among its members individuals and firms, representing all types of business, industry and the professions, who all share a mutual desire to achieve a better community for its citizens.
Chamber membership is an INVESTMENT in the present and future welfare of both the individual, and the community.
