Membership in the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce offers more than social networking opportunities. Because the Chamber connects directly with policy makers, seeks to enhance economic development throughout the County, and looks to support member businesses, active participation and input from Chamber members in its committee activities and projects is essential. Such involvement is not limited to officers or executives of Member businesses, but their employees as well. This provides a significant opportunity for Members to not only make meaningful contributions to our community, but also to enhance their leadership and project management skills in areas of similar interest.
