  • A Message from our Executive Director

    I would like to personally invite you to join our OPRF Chamber community!
     
    With over 440 other local businesses, we would love to help you survive these trying times, grow your business and get you more connected into the community.

    What is our Chamber all About?

    Our Chamber is all about Community - plain and simple. And this Community knows that "a rising tide floats all boats"...and right now our boats need some float!
     
    Time is at a premium and we know you are busy, so here are a few easy and quick ways for you to learn about all that we do:
     
    LISTEN to our 20 min podcast recording with our Board President Dr. Mary Ann Bender on how her Chamber membership allowed her to start her business with nothing but an empty schedule and a will to make it on her own.
     
    WATCH our Board Vice President Lynn Palmgren tell you in less than 2minutes how this Chamber helped her grow her business.
     
    LOOK to see how members of this Chamber came together to help fellow business owners make ends meet by gifting them memberships in our first ever Annual Appeal.
     

    Why Choose Our Community?

    Our Mission in a nutshell is to work for you and your success
     
    We are dedicated to embracing diversity and equity, providing marketing opportunities when you need them, and having a Board of Directors and Staff who reflects our business community and who work tirelessly for you, our small business owners. 
     

    Want to learn more?

    Got 5 minutes? Check out our social media (FaceBook and Instagram) to get a quick overview of what we are all about - vital and timely information, in-person and virtual programming events, and a great network to share and commiserate with in the Members Group. 
     
    Got 10 minutes? Find a community that suits you! Check out our Affinity Groups and find one that fits your schedule, style and industry.
     
    Got half an hour? Head on over to our Inside the Chamber Podcast and listen to a few casual conversations with our members. We are tackling the hard topics (there are so many right now!) with a sense of humor and a touch of sass!
     
     
    We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our community!
    Regards,
