Column: Businesses join Chamber of Commerce
ESCANABA — The Delta County Area Chamber of Commerce provides an avenue for our business people to play a leadership role in building a healthy, vibrant community. We are a partner to every community, every business, and every citizen.
When a business joins the Delta County Area Chamber of Commerce, they become part of a county-wide network of businesses that have come together to promote quality of life in our area through a healthy business climate. This type of network is more important than ever during these uncertain times.
During its regularly scheduled board meeting held on Aug. 13, the following businesses were presented and approved for membership by the Delta Chamber Board of Directors.
