Bourgeois: Stay business-connected through Chamber events

The River Region Chamber of Commerce represents nearly 300 business organizations in the River Parishes.

Our staff, board of directors and committees are dedicated to serving our members as we continue to offer events, programs and resources to “Grow, Strengthen and Unify” the businesses in our region.

Make plans to join us at our next general membership meeting on Thursday (Sept. 13) at 8:30 a.m. at Belle Terre Country Club.

Our topic of discussion will be “Women in Leadership: Equity, Equality and Empowerment.”  You may register by calling the Chamber office at 985-359-9777.

Don’t forget to register and participate in one of our most engaging events; the annual golf tournament.

Whether you’re a golfer or spectator, there’s something for all Chamber members to enjoy. Team and sponsorship opportunities are filling up fast.

Get your business registered today by calling the Chamber office.

Your involvement in the River Region Chamber of Commerce is critical to our region’s success and sustainability. Together, we speak for the business community as a unified voice.

Thank you for your investment in YOUR Chamber, and I look forward to engaging with you at one of our upcoming events.

Let’s get GROWing!
