Chamber hosts new member orientation

The River Region Chamber of Commerce recently hosted a 101: Orientation for new members to introduce the benefits of memberships. Members networked, and Sandy Lambert of Louisiana Federal Credit Union won a special raffle prize.

During the meeting, Dayna James of United Front Transportation Services was named Ambassador of the Quarter for the second consecutive quarter. James, a former Fast Trac graduate, thanks Parish President Natalie Robotom, former Economic Director Jerry W. Jones and Semi Wadhwa of Belle Terre Country Club for getting her involved in regional chambers.

“There are so many people in the parish saying we don’t have anything,” James said. “Well, let’s support and encourage what we do have, and things will start growing.”

Member engagement coordinator Stacey Scott also invited new members to the River Region Chamber’s upcoming 15-year anniversary celebration June 21 in LaPlace.
