New chamber members

I am delighted to share that we added 26 new members to our Chamber roster during the first half of 2014. While many of these were brand new businesses to the area, such as Ashley Furniture and Mountain State Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, several were already located in the community and sought out Chamber membership as a good fit for their existing and growing businesses, such as The PM Co. and Michelle Coleman Photography.

For many, many years our Chamber motto has been “Chamber members support Chamber members.” When new members join the Chamber we encourage our existing members to connect with the new members.

For each business and organization, this “connection” takes a unique form it may be stopping by to patronize the new member, keeping them top-of-mind when a challenge presents itself that the new member can assist with, or seeking out the new members at a Chamber event to make introductions. Whatever form it takes, I encourage our members to continue the tradition of supporting one another.

Thank you to our existing members and to the following businesses and organizations that have joined the Chamber so far this year. We are delighted to have your support of our activities and the business community. More importantly, we are delighted to help support you in your endeavors.
