This past week I have been cleaning up our chamber membership display area. I invite all chamber members to bring me materials to pass out to the public when they stop by the chamber with questions. Please feel free to bring me brochures and business cards. In my first week here, we’ve had many visitors, so this is an excellent way to promote your business.
