What do I like best about working for the Chamber: Planting a seed of education, advocacy, and leadership in the local community equates to a valuable opportunity to interact with people of all walks of life. The community leaders, teachers, and business-minded- servant hearts challenge and innovate our local community through women empowerment, economic development, and civic engagement. I get to meet and work with those people but most importantly, I learn from them at the Chamber.
