Letter from the Board

Happy New Year to you!

Whew - 2021 was a doozy wasn't it!? Good news? We made it. We made it through as individual businesses, as a community, as a collective force. Seriously - Congratulations on turning the page from 2021 to 2022.

Here at the chamber we have lots to look forward to. With Celebration of the Lakes & the Home & Business Expo on the horizon, things are busier than ever. If you haven't yet registered your business to be a part of the Home & Business Expo, you should! This is such a wonderful event focused on the Chisago Lakes Businesses.

Celebration of the Lakes this year is back and better than ever. We are excited to have ice racing join the fun this year, as well as another candlelit snowshoe through Allemansrätt Park, Snowmobile Raffle and SO MUCH MORE! If you missed out on the excitement last year, make plans now to join us in February!

A big goal that I have for 2022 is to help all of you learn how to utilize the chamber as a resource for your businesses. Advertising opportunities, sponsorships, luncheons, those are the easy ways for you to lean into what the chamber has to offer. But, did you know that you can upload photos, advertisements, logos, events, etc. to the chamber website? Did you know that you can log in and update your business information as your company or organization makes changes. We have a REALLY robust site and I'm determined to share with all of you the many ways that it can work to your advantage.

We have so much to look forward to and I'm so glad that I get to partner with all of YOU!!

Happy New Year!
