I am very excited to be a board member and look forward to serving our wonderful community.

Chamber Offices/Incubator

The Chamber building also serves as the community business incubator.  An incubator is a multitenant facility providing affordable space and an environment that promotes the growth of small companies. Business incubators, as economic tools, have become increasingly common in the last decade and a half for stimulating local development. Incubators provide facilities and services to catalyze small-business growth. In fact, incubated companies have a dramatically higher rate of survival than an average spinout does. The incubator concept is simple and appealing. The Chamber has 4 offices available for rent. Rent is $150 a month, including utilities, trash and access to the board room as scheduled.  Available is a men and women's restroom, break room/kitchen and front lobby.
