In what ways has the partnership with the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce helped your business thrive?
“Being a member of the Chamber of Commerce has helped our business grow and prosper. The Chamber provides the opportunity, it is up to the individual business to take advantage of all of the great things the chamber offers. Over the years we have made connections with local businesses and non-profits. We have taken advantage of business educational opportunities. We have made new friends and most importantly been exposed to new customers. I encourage you to not only join the Chamber but get involved, you only get what you put into it!”
Do you have any stories about your time with the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce?
“Our business got involved with the Chamber via the Tourism committee. Both my husband Rusty and later myself would chair this group who met monthly. As that committee grew, it took on it’s own identity as Visit Temecula Valley and is now a huge presence in the community promoting tourism!”
