Chamber of Commerce, I understand the importance of a chamber and the benefits the Lakewood Chamber has to offer all business professionals. My objective is to continue to build a Chamber that reflects the diversity of our business community.
“My goals are to develop relationships and work closely with all who have a stake in the success of our businesses and our business professionals, not only within Lakewood’s borders but its surrounding areas as well. This is going to be a very exciting time of growth for the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce.”
