Chamber Board Approves New Name
The Metro-East Regional Chamber of Commerce is the new name of the recently combined Swansea Chamber of Commerce and former Fairview Heights Chamber of Commerce. The Board of Directors received input from the Chamber Naming Committee as well as feedback from the Membership to determine the new name.
Members are enjoying the new Chamber and have been turning out in big numbers for the recent Business After Hours and Ribbon Cutting. If you are a current member who we haven’t seen in a while or some interested in joining, please consider attending one of the Chamber’s upcoming events and get to know the new Metro-East Regional Chamber of Commerce.
