We invite you to join us as a member, become involved with the Chamber and let us know any ideas you have for other benefits you would like to see the New Lisbon Chamber provide or coordinate. Please let us know if you have any questions!
We understand the struggles that the pandemic has caused businesses and organizations over the past years. Through 2020 -2022 we have rolled with the punches, as you have, and had to pivot more times than we can count. We still find the need to rearrange some of our events when it seemed appropriate. We shifted our Farmers appreciation meal from a sit-down meal with an aging population, to handing out frozen turkeys and all the fixings for each farm family to make a wonderful meal at home. We also held some events, and let businesses and individuals decide what was right for them in choosing to participate or not. Surprisingly this year, our events have had increased attendance due to everyone being excited to be out and socializing. We as a group keep striving to make each event bigger and better, to bring awareness to our community.
We have also found a fun new way that our Members only will be able to advertise events, job openings etc… you will have to watch our Facebook page and website to learn more (THINK TOO BIG TO KEEP INSIDE) ! We continue to add business resources and our members employment opportunities to our website as you bring them to us. We are always open to ways that we can help. Please reach out to us to let us know what we can do for your business.
The New Lisbon Area Chamber of Commerce is proud and amazed of how our community came together this past year. We are interested in hearing YOUR idea in how to make New Lisbon even more amazing, please help by brainstorming below!
