A chamber of commerce is often the first place a business connects in a community. However, they do more than host networking groups and send out welcome packets. How much do you know about what they do?
In this episode of Business: Engaged!, we talk with Raymond Burns and Michael Lindsey of the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce in Rogers, Arkansas. They explain what a chamber of commerce does and how membership can benefit a business.
One important role that a chamber of commerce serves is influencing legislation that affects economic development and business regulation. They’ll update us on what members are saying and how lawmakers are responding.
