Who’s Running in Our Local Election?

2019-04-24T15:34:42+00:00

While the race for the White House and Congress often grips the nation, participation in – and even awareness of – our local elections has significantly declined in recent years.

Ironically, these local elections concern the offices and issues that have clear and immediate implications for voters in their day-to-day lives – arguably more so than federal contests. Such elections are not only for mayors and council positions, but also local judges, sheriffs, clerks, school board members and other officials. Local elections also include community issues that are put directly to voters – through various ballot measures and initiatives.

Bottom line: these are the elections that affect you the most. Your quality of life is on the ballot.  Please vote in our upcoming […]

Insurance: How do I make this happen for my small business?

2018-04-17T16:02:52+00:00

This is a question that plagues many of our local businesses.  In our last Lessons in Business meeting we discussed small business benefits.  There are many options for your business to consider. Businesses can choose traditional insurance, non-traditional insurance plans, health sharing, and many more options.  Our goal at the chamber is to help ensure that you are aware of all of the options available to you and make sure that you understand that there are options for every business at just about every price point.  

The session began with Chamber President, Bridget Brandt sharing how the Chamber has moved to Health Sharing for their employees and the process they went through to evaluate this benefit […]
