Robert's Chamber Testimonial
Traditionally it had been my impression the Chambers primary purpose was serving and supporting for -profit businesses. Once PARC joined the Davis Chamber as a non-profit organization (business), I found we had a place and the Chamber was not only serving for-profit businesses.
I found all Chamber members were integrated together with common interest and goals. This was demonstrated by the various activities and committees the Chamber organized and sponsored, such as Military Affairs, Legislative Affairs, Women in Business, and other committees. They create and organize special forums to exchange information and share with their luncheons, golf tournaments, and annual awards banquet.
The Davis Chamber does a very effective job of enriching the communities and quality of life for all of us and our local communities.
