I would have to think that this chamber would provide more opportunities for advancement than the one in Middletown.

Have you guys/gals seen the plans for the Bethany/Cin Day area yet? It looks awesome. I can try and find the link if you can't. I need another reason to go Putters on Saturday afternoons, we love that place. Those chili habanero wings are just incredible. I agree with CM, definitely.

BINGO!

They should ONLY join IF they want to lure more business to Monroe. I can't see Middletown helping us do that - especially when they place ALL of their future hopes on AK.

My hometown did that to Chrysler. Had a good 30+ year run - then it was gone in a blink.

I'm confused (imagine that!!!).

Didn't we join (or try to join) the West Chester Chamber once before? Or, was that a different Chamber. What happened to that original decision to leave Middletown and go to West Chester, because they ended up going back to Middletown.

The West Chester Chamber seems like a better fit for Monroe. Just remember that we're still gonna be the small fish in the big pond. We'll get their left overs but West Chester will get the big deals. Funny - just like it was in the Middletown Chamber.

Council voted yes to join the West Chester/Liberty Twp Chamber. There was no discussion but Bill Trickk from Middletown was in attendance. He did not speak, either.

I asked City Manager Bill Brock, why?

He said it is better to be included in all economic development efforts possible.

Simpley put if you do not have a seat at the table, you can not help with the discussion. The joining of chambers in our area really makes sense in that we can be part of the discussions not just the topic of them.

who goes to the different Chamber meetings? Is that the City Manager's responsibility?

I've been a member of the West Chester Liberty Township Chamber Alliance for four years. It's a great organization and they do a wonderful job of promoting their members. Their staff members are always very professional, outgoing and friendly.

I photograph their monthly luncheons and several annual events and I regularly meet new clients through my chamber activities and contacts.

It is a dynamic and well run organization.

My 2 cents. :-)
