In return, the Chamber recognizes their accomplishment throughout the year in many ways including:
- Business of the Year banner

- Inclusion on Chamber’s “Business of the Year” webpage
- Profiled in the VISTA Newsletter
- Recognition at the Annual Membership meeting

It set us apart from our competitors and demonstrated to our customers that they are working with an exceptional local company with a proven reputation for quality workmanship and customer satisfaction. The Chamber’s continued recognition throughout the year has branded our name with success, and we continue to receive referrals.”
