A Message from your Chamber

Believe it or not, using a phone can still work for businesses! We have gotten a bit lazy by leaning on technology too often. When you call a present or potential client, it develops a rapport which emails, social media posts and texts cannot.

So, don’t be shy. Pick up the phone and make that call!

Speaking of making calls, we are presently phoning our members to make sure that they are receiving our communications as well as to take their Taste of the Town ticket orders.
While making these calls, we are noticing that many member directory listings have outdated contact information.

If you are a current member, please look at your listing on our website and let us know if there have been any changes.
