The Board of Directors & Ambassador Committee would like to thank you for your Membership in the Quad Area Chamber of Commerce. 

It is our goal to review where we are at in terms of membership, sustainability and strategic planning.  

We would like to ask you to take a few moments to answer the following questions.  Your information will be used to identify what the Board of Directors can do to support your business in the Quad Area.  

An email was sent from Chamber Nation using the same email address as the weekly newsletter. Please look in your junk or spam folder for the email. Please also add the following email addresses to your contact list to allow our emails to come into your inbox.;;   

If you did not receive the email, you may log into Chamber Nation and under the member section look for surveys. Each member is assigned a unique file, so you can only complete it once and you are not allowed to forward it.   

We have extended the Survey until April 3rd.  Thank You for taking care of this timely.
