I have personally been a member of the Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Crown Point Chamber of Commerce for almost 10 years. I currently serve on the Board of Directors, Finance Committee and Chair the Chamber Golf Outing. I have chaired other events in the past and have volunteered on several other committees. I continue to be a member year after year since it creates multiple opportunities for me to network with area business owners and offer business banking solutions from my business, Citizens Financial Bank.
The Chamber offers events and activities in the morning (Morning Mingle), during the day (Membership Luncheons, Golf Outing, Expo, Reality Store) and also in the evenings (Networking Nights, Ribbon Cuttings, Business After Hours) so there is always something to be involved in to fit your schedule. The more you put into chamber events and meetings, the more you will get out of your Crossroads participation. So my advice is get involved with the chamber.
