The Chamber exists to make a community a better place to work, live, play and do business.
Businesses become members because they take great pride in their community. They are proud of being part of an organization that plays a key role in the community. The Chamber is a not-for-profit advocate for businesses. It is an organization managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, established to promote civic, commercial and industrial progress within its community and to work diligently with community partners for the establishment of sound legislation and efficient administration at all levels of government.
