Wired With the Chamber
We are excited to be bringing this new opportunity to the public. The goal of WIRED with The Chamber is to create an opportunity for ANYONE to drop in and talk to the Chamber. We are calling it “WIRED with The Chamber” as it represents being “wired in” or connected into the Chamber, the internet, other businesses in Sandy, connecting with your community, and maybe being a bit wired after having a locally roasted coffee!!!!!
