As a Chamber member, you will derive much more from your investment when you get involved. If you have just an hour or two each month and want to expand your visibility with the local business community, consider teaming up with one of these Chamber programs:
ACCESSIBILITY AND DISABILITY INCLUSION
Suzie Scher, Committee Chair
Meets the second Wednesday of each month
The Accessibility and Disability Inclusion group is dedicated to fostering a more inclusive community in Greater Concord. As proud members of the Disabilities and Inclusion Committee, we are committed to collaborating, sharing resources, and celebrating successes in this critical area.
This group is a supportive environment where members can connect, learn, and grow. We believe that raising awareness of the accessibility needs of disabled residents is essential to creating a more inclusive community. To that end, our group works to improve accessibility to public spaces and create community events that engage and connect disabled and non-disabled residents.
We invite all active members of The Greater Concord Chamber who share our passion for inclusion and accessibility to join our group, and we look forward to collaborating with you to make our community an even better place for all.
Victoria Briskin, Committee Chair
