We have seven member groups: Chamber Ambassadors, Women’s Alliance, Black Business Alliance, Latino Business Group, Asian Business Council, Veteran Business Council, and the Young Professionals.
Update your Business Information in the Directory

Network, Network, Network
They say it’s not about what you know but who you know. That rings especially true in the business world. Take advantage of all opportunities to network with those in your community; you never know what could come of it. The Chamber offers a variety of networking events each month, like Business Over Breakfast and Chamber After Hours.

Write a Thought Leader Blog
Those who are major investors have the opportunity to write a thought leader blog. The blog post allows you to share your expertise in an area related to your industry and is a great chance to showcase your skills and get your name out to the community. These blogs will also be highlighted on our Business Resources page.
Whether you attend networking events or simply add your business details to the directory, using every available resource provided to you as a member is key to getting the most out of your membership.
