How does my Chamber of Commerce work for me and my business?
Your Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of citizens who are investing their time and money in a community development program – working together to improve the economics, civic and cultural well-being of the area.
Any citizen who is interested in helping to develop the area (which means more money, more business, more jobs and better living for everyone) is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The work of the Chamber is financed by the investment of the members who support it on the basis of their ability to pay and their interest in the progress of the area.
The Chamber of Commerce is a service institution and an action organization. It provides a medium through which people can take effective action for the progress of the community.
The Chamber of Commerce functions through the working committees of the organization. Money, planning, inspiration and guidance are useless unless the members work vigorously on the committee of their choice.
