“Moving back to the West Metro area after 5 years, I needed to reconnect with my community. The West Metro Chamber has provided just that. They offer a wide array of events and networking groups from happy hours for Young Professional groups to intimate Business 2 Business leads groups. Furthermore, the chamber creates events to connect with other chambers in the area further expanding network connections. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the staff who are friendly, well connected and always seeking ways to improve your experience within the chamber.”
