Why did you join the Chamber?
I truly enjoy being a part of the Obion County Chamber as it is constantly and actively involved in all the small businesses of Obion County.  I, along with our colleagues at the insurance agency, enjoy lending a hand in helping those businesses continue to grow and be a true benefit to our community.

Why do you serve on the Board of Directors?
Serving on the Board of Directors allows me to help give our small businesses a voice when any questions or concerns that are facing our communities need to be addressed.

What is the Chamber's role in the business community?
Any local Chamber is an extremely important part of the business community in any town, no matter the size.  The resources that it can provide, along with the friendships and relationships you can establish are constructive to one personally, as well as professionally, not to mention the programs the Chamber offers are informative and helpful.
