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.
