What executives are saying...

"No matter how long you have worked in the chamber business, you still have lots to learn. Why not consider continuing your education by participating in one of the training options made possible by your membership in IACCE? DO IT OR LOSE IT!"
-Dave Hinderliter, Chicago Southland Chamber of Commerce
