By definition, a chamber of commerce is a local organization of businesses whose goal is to further the interests of the businesses. Business owners in towns and cities form these local societies to advocate on behalf of the business community. Local Chambers work on the local level to bring the business community together to develop strong local networks, which can result in a business-to-business exchange.
In most cases, local Chambers work with their local government, such as mayor, their city council and local representatives to develop pro-business initiatives.
If interested please nominate yourself or someone that you think would be vital to aiding our business community.
For information, contact The Chamber 775-423-2544 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
