Economic Development

Existing Industries Survey

Every 2-3 years the Chamber compiles an extensive survey of local industries.  The survey results allow community leaders to address issues vital to the continued local operations of existing industries.  (Started in 1995)

Industry Appreciation Events

Local industries are recognized each year in a variety of ways.  Industry Appreciation Golf Tournaments and BBQs have been held in the past.  This is done in an effort to show our local established industries the area’s appreciation for their continued support to our economic base.
