From the start, you can connect with your fellow members through the avenue that best suits your specific business model and personal approach.

  • Social butterfly? Network at a chamber mixer or join the conversation with the Chamber’s large social media audiences (on TwitterFacebookLinkedIn and more!). Your fellow members want to meet and hear from you.
  • Prefer email or the telephone? Find fellow members with compatible interests via our Business Directory to start the ball rolling.
  • More of a marketer? Connect with your fellow members via a member-to-member discount offer, an informative blogpost, or take advantage of the full range of advertising options available to members.
