It is our way of letting those present know that we, the chamber staff, are acting on behalf of nearly 800 businesses who care about their community, invest their time and resources into making this community a better place and are celebrating each and every win that comes our way. From the Greater Springfield Moving Forward Initiative, to job training initiatives, our members are working together to transform our community. With every new member, this 800-member-strong collaborative becomes stronger, more influential and closer to our goal of making this a vibrant, business-welcoming community, with a balanced demographic with a thriving quality of life. To our existing members, “thank you” for sharing this vision and for making it happen. To our new members, “welcome,” and get ready for a fun ride. With your support we vow to continue to make your businesses and the growth of our community our number one priority. Mike McDorman, President & CEO, Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce.
