The chamber will also promote your grand opening/ ribbon-cutting ceremony and assist with any public relations efforts.
- Chamber events and programs. Chamber events and programs provide members with great opportunities to get to know new people and expand their prospect base. Chamber events are innovative and fun ways to help members meet potential customers, clients and vendors— and generate new business leads. We work with other local area chambers to offer educational opportunities and networking events.
