NOACC Chamber Focus Series - Chambers and Charities

Charitable organizations make up a sizeable part of the national GDP and are often valuable members of the local business community. Additionally, many chamber members find satisfaction in lending their business expertise and serve as valuable board members of those groups.

We will cover these details and more in this interactive webinar.
