Chamber in the News
By carefully developing and scrupulously maintaining a culture based on sound governance, exemplary leadership, transparency, and accountability, and a business ethics that rests upon the six principles of Character Counts!, the Chamber has become an influential advocate for the business community and the community at large and, at the same time, it has been also extraordinarily successful in being portrayed accurately by the news media.
