The Chamber is positioned to provide regional leadership that harnesses the resources and vitality of our local communities. Our name, “Cranberry Country” speaks to our regional uniqueness. In a new “global” economy, our competitive advantage lies increasingly in recognizing these local strengths, which include talents, resources, and relationships.
The Chamber provides an opportunity for members to engage and build a positive network of business connections that allows businesses to participate in something greater than themselves. Participation in community heightens creativity, problem solving, networking, business development and opportunity. Within the greater community, the Chamber has the opportunity to “give back” in ways that support community efforts and that in turn builds good will toward local businesses, increasing over-all quality of life in communities.
As a Chamber we can unite our voices in order to educate our communities about the positive contribution of businesses; to advocate for laws that promote small businesses and economic development; and to advocate for local planning efforts that will grow and support a thriving business community.
