When I first entered the business community, I was introduced early on to the networking group LINC. This became my gateway not only into the Lacey Chamber, but into the family that is the Lacey business community. Being a part of this chamber has been really great for building my network and my business. But it's also been really great for building my credibility and reputation and making friends. I have some solid friendships thanks to my involvement in the Lacey Chamber and there's a lot of businesses that are top of mind that I'll gladly refer any client or friend to. Lastly, I would never trade this chamber for any other, because it is so much fun! There is so much to do and the staff and members are incredibly welcoming and generous with their time and knowledge. The Lacey South Sound Chamber is the best!

I joined the Chamber back in 2006 on the recommendation of my Mentor at that time. He told me that in order to network with people in the community, it would be in my best interest to get involved with one or 2 organizations and participate in them well. So I was "all in", volunteering as an ambassador, then on the BOD, Executive Board and Vice President. I finally had the privilege to serve as President in 2012. My membership has help me to establish a presence as a leader in our community and to become "top of mind" to those that may need my services.

“I debated with myself about joining the Lacey South Sound Chamber for several months. As I belong to a number of business organizations, I didn't want to be just another "joiner" I finally did make the decision to join -- for a couple of reasons. First I wanted to give back to the community from which I attribute much of my success in the real estate and property management business. Second, I wanted the opportunity to network with my fellow Lacey South Sound business owners. In the relatively short time I have been a member, I can easily justify the investment of time and money in being active in the Lacey South Sound Chamber. I highly recommend active Chamber membership to all area businesses and look forward to a long and mutually-rewarding affiliation."
