The Chamber is the “Voice of Business” with a focus on influencing policies that contribute to a strong economy. We are dedicated to providing support for all of our member businesses regardless of their size or industry. We work closely with community leaders and those involved in the legislative process to make sure that your voice is heard.

Our advocacy efforts reflect the Chambers mission statement: to influence effective change and foster an environment where businesses and the community can prosper.
