“When I transitioned careers into Insurance, I needed to expand my network fast.  The West Metro Chamber has allowed me to quickly grow my network through their events.  I’ve been able to establish great referral partnerships within the chamber while simultaneously be introduced to new individuals at every event I attend.  I center my prospecting efforts around the activities the chamber puts on each month.  Joining the West Metro Chamber has accelerated my business growth.”
