The Association provides resources to strengthen the development of commercial, environmental, and service organizations that are a part of the local business community.

The roots of our organization began in 1914 with business leaders who recognized the challenges and benefits of operating in our region. Methods of doing business have changed, a trusted resource for businesses and consumers is more valuable than ever. Continuing the legacy of what this organization has accomplished has led to the development of this framework.
