Membership

“Being a chamber of commerce member comes with many benefits. I understand that the chamber assists in boosting our local business, but networking also serves us well in law enforcement. I am able to meet and talk with our business owners and employees and get to know them. After all, I took an oath to keep these folks safe. Their safety is not taken lightly under my watch, and knowing our community on a personal level makes me and my department even more committed to our citizens’, businesses’ and visitors’ safety.” — Gary Davidson, Chief of Police
