We believe in supporting our community as well as our membership and we have several committees set up to aid in the support we provide. The Chamber also fundraises to help in hosting events along with offering value to our members with the quarterly Speaker Series.
The Trade & Recreation Fair Committee was founded to research the possibility of hosting a bi-annual Trade Show in McLennan.

In order to fund this Trade Fair, the committee has now hosted 3 fun community events to build the momentum, get the word out and promote a sense of community!
