One of the primary objectives of a Chamber of Commerce is to support, promote and advocate on behalf of its businesses and to champion, recognize and bring attention to the issues facing critical segments of our business community. The roles that Homeowners Associations and Multi-Family Residential properties play within our cities are essential to each of our communities to maintain the economic health and quality of place we have all come to enjoy. All too often the contributions made by these businesses to the economic health and well-being of a community are overlooked and under-appreciated.

Change the Game is about challenging the Conventional Wisdom and Solving Tomorrow’s Challenges Today.  Building relationships and trust with industry experts and working together to sustain our communities and to create new economic opportunities.    These communities are “game changers” for cities and understanding where/how we can engage to support each other’s efforts is paramount to protecting, maintaining and growing our communities.
