When we first opened our business almost 9 years ago one of the first things we did was become a member at the Altoona Area Chamber of Commerce. Starting a new business we found it was important to become connected to the community any way we could. Melissa and her team discussed all the benefits we could take part in and I was rewarded almost immediately. I was able to advertise my business through a variety of fun and exciting sponsorships and make lasting relationships with other business owners. This has been one of the most rewarding investments we have made since day one!
