Rachel Sheikh, Estate Planner and owner of RBS Law, has found her updated listing on the Chamber directory to be a huge benefit to her business.
“The Chamber member directory is a great way to connect with other chamber members and even generate leads,” says Rachel. “A handful of my clients have found me through the Chamber member directory since it is accessible to anyone through the chamber website. I’ve also used the member directory to connect with other chamber members and form meaningful referral partnerships.”
