Governed by volunteers just like you and staffed by passionate professionals, your local chamber of commerce helps improve the community by campaigning for small business growth, building a thriving economic base, and much more. Citizens of Harbor Springs benefit daily from the work of these dedicated individuals.
October is Chamber of Commerce Month in Michigan. During this month, we take a moment to pause and reflect on the many contributions of these volunteers and who they are.
Take a minute, stop in, say hello, thank them. If you are a businessperson, consider joining and being a part of all that is happening in your local Chamber of Commerce and community.
