“Being a member of the chamber is a valuable learning experience. Not only are we supported with business connections, we are also supported with tools such as financial Literacy, wealth building, business planning essentials and access to other positive structural organizations. The membership has allowed BID 39 to sit at tables we could not have entered alone. The chamber is resourceful as well as dedicated to the survival of small and large businesses. We value our membership and encourage others to explore the dynamic resources available.
