An uncertaineconomic climate continues toforce businesses to be innova-tive and do things differentlythan they’ve ever done before.Many people believe that thechamber should get involvedwith a variety of initiatives andactivities. Some of the ideas
are good, but do they ft within
our mission? And, does thechamber have the capacity totake them on?We have realigned our teamand are working hard to de-velop a strategic plan that of-fers focus and direction. Our mission is to advocate for the business community and pro-vide opportunities for businessengagements and growth.
