Joining the Chamber has been absolutely amazing for LSI. We have been able to partner with a great number of businesses which has indeed added vertical markets to our businesses. We have also been able to enter into the government's offices and been able to express our ideas with the local government. This indeed has broadened our government business’s divisions.
Personally I have been able to move forward in my career because of all of the connections such as people like Barbara Riddle, Shelly Nettesheim, Chantel Chase and Angie Osguthorpe. These ladies have been key to my professional success. I have also learned alot from my guys friends such as Mike Jensen, Jay Greaves, Mark Livingston, Rand Kerr, Mike Call and Gary Peterson. I have also have used our connections to do business with them.
The ROI of the membership dues are priceless. Come join us and have fun!!!!
