Regional Liaisons

Regional Liaisons assist the Chamber with identifying and focusing on business-related issues specific to a local community. Regional Liaisons are actively engaged in local government or organizations and assist with the development of local partnerships to collaboratively address community needs. Regional Liaisons serve as ambassadors of the Chamber, identifying siloed or duplicative efforts and encouraging regional perspective and local partnerships.
