The Economic Development Committee of the Chamber works with community leaders, Chamber members, and other organizations toward policies that help to promote business creation, sustainability and growth. Areas of focus include jobs, employment and business retention that stimulates overall economic growth, and improves the quality of life in the region.
The Committee also facilitates the Chamber's Think Local First initiative, whose goal is to support buying, hiring, and contracting locally.
