Chamber leadership has been active at more than recruiting new members.
"Here at the chamber we are working hard on redesigning our website and brochure as well as implementing new programs to better serve and market our members, the area and make the office more efficient," Courtright said. "While we are planning all of the chamber's events for 2011 and beyond we are hosting business seminars, open houses,and assisting other area organizations with their events. One of our goals includes looking at new ways to better promote events and draw additional visitors to the area."
The chamber will host a membership open house this spring. No date has been set.
"Current chamber members will be welcome to stop by the office to meet and talk with the staff as well as see the new and improved changes within the office," Courtright said. "Area businesses interested increasing their visibility in the ever changing market place and learning more about chamber membership benefits are encouraged to stop by as well."
