Chambers of commerce throughout the country are banding together in support of Moore, Oklahoma by becoming members of the Moore Chamber of Commerce.
“I just saw [on Facebook] where my friend Aaron Nelson, who is the CEO at the Chapel Hill Chamber in North Carolina, had joined and was encouraging others to do the same and I felt compelled to do it. A couple of years ago I remember joining another small chamber for a year whose community was devastated by a flood. I think it is a great thing to do as we never know when the shoe may be on the other foot,” said Liz Horton, IOM, executive director, Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center.
As business advocates and community development leaders, chamber executives understand that joining a chamber means joining a community and the promotion of the businesses in that community. Nelson, Horton, and other chamber executives who have joined the Moore Chamber of Commerce are true examples of what it means to foster and support a community, not only the Moore community, but the chamber of commerce community as a whole.
