Chamber of Commerce

MEDC has worked with our Vice President of Chamber Events, Mandi Arinder, to plan a new Chamber professional development strategy. Starting in 2018, MEDC will partner with a Chamber influencer in each of our 8 districts to bring a variety of important topics and valuable peer-networking time.  Each Chamber Chatter will be from 11:30 AM - 1 PM and will only cost $25 for MEDC Members and $40 for non-members.  Lunch will be provided.  Please view the 2018 Chamber Chatter Roadshow Calendar below. Stay tuned as we will be updating the calendar with topics, locations and dates.
