Being a member of the Columbus Chamber was the BEST business decision I made for both of my businesses. It’s been part of my business plan from the beginning. The Chamber is the pulse of the business community and being a member keeps me connected, promotes my business beyond the county lines and is a large part of my company’s success story.
