Hear it from Jeff:

1. How have you capitalized on your Loveland Chamber investment and what has it brought you?  I have realized countless connections and increased visibility through my investment of time with the Loveland Chamber of Commerce. From these, I have benefitted from business transactions in both directions; as a buyer and seller.

2.What Chamber events, committees etc. do you find the most valuable?  The Business Before & After Hours along with the Ribbon Cuttings have always been my favorites.  I have learned how to use the Chamber's website to help me identify the educational and other events that make have the highest value to me.

3.What would you say to someone considering Chamber investment? Join!  Then have an ambassador show you how to get the maximum benefit from your investment.

4. What has been the top benefit to you for your chamber involvement?  Being able to connect with so many impact players in our community.
