Chamber Vice President, Sara Ray, commented, “the Chamber is so excited to bring together the ‘best of the best’ to help inspire locals to think outside the box to grow their organization. This event is open to the community and we look forward to a fun and educational day!” Be sure to follow the Business Owners Sharing Solutions Summit event page on Facebook for a list of panelists and other updates.
