Members also have the opportunity to enhance their listings in the featured business section on the website and benefit from higher exposure by adding their logo, a link to their website and a short description of their business.
Networking Opportunities- Through Association of Commerce sponsored events, monthly membership meetings, or hosting Business After Hours there are many different areas where you can network with other business owners, customers, and community members.
