During our monthly new member orientation, I often share an analogy about how chamber membership compares to a gym membership. The theory is, the more you hit the gym, the better results you’ll get. The more committed you are to your membership, the more benefits you will receive. However, a key difference between a chamber membership and a gym membership is that no matter how many events you attend or how much you work with us, the chamber continues to work for you. Thank you for your support and for allowing us to be your trusted partner. We look forward to a successful year together in 2023!
