MEET HARTLAND BOARD MEMBER AND PAST BOARD CHAIR – DONNA DORAU

I got involved in the chamber for work in 2010, and it was one of the best decision I ever made. From the events, the networking, the educational programs, the people, the fun, it is just a great group to be involved in. The key to making the most out of a chamber membership is to make the most of all the great benefit it has to offer. Bottom line. . . you get out of it what you put into it. If you want to network with other local business people then the 20/20 or Business after 5 would be good to attend. If you want to connect in a more social way then the Hartland Street Dance or Tri-Chamber Golf event would be a great choice. There are so many ways to get involved with the chamber and so many benefits to doing so.
