Membership Maximizer

This free event helps newer Chamber members make the most out of their membership. Scheduled about three times a year at the Chamber office, we introduce our members to the Chamber staff, committee chairs, online registration, and more, all accompanied by coffee and breakfast snacks. The Membership Maximizer is a great way to learn how the Chamber operates and how we can best work for you! Please RSVP to save your seat. All new Chamber member businesses, and employees new to current Chamber member companies, are welcome to attend.
