Carbon Chamber & Economic Development members give their thoughts on why it is important to belong to the Chamber and how it has helped their business and community.
“The Carbon County Chamber have been wonderful to work and partner with. As the director of a new nonprofit organization, I am faced with the challenge of making contacts and getting my organization's message out in the community. Joining the Chamber and attending their events has given me numerous opportunities to connect with top professionals in our region. When I approached them to ask for their participation in my first big event (the Carbon County Nonprofit Forum), the Chamber stepped up and offered to partner. As the only employee of my organization, I was thrilled to have a trusted collaborator to offer insight into the planning and help with some of the heavy lifting required to execute a successful event. Alice, Kathy, Linda, and Marlyn have all been very kind, welcoming and helpful. I know the Chamber will be a valuable partner going forward and I look forward to working together on our shared community development goals."
