The Chamber asked these dedicated community leaders why they chose to volunteer their time to serve on the Board of Directors, and received an outpouring of positive messages that expressed the Chamber's
positive impact—both on an individual and community-wide level.

"I'm honored to be part of an organization that promotes a vibrant and inclusive community where the arts, culture and businesses big and small, thrive together!" wrote Ryan Hvizda. Ambassador Committee Chair, Heather
Capraro, said, "To know how hard this chamber works on legislation, training, networking events and much more makes me proud to be associated with such a great group of people."

Other board members expressed how the Chamber has helped them build their professional network in the area, and even fostered their career. "I have been a member of the Chamber for over 22 years and it has been one of the key components of my experience in Concord," said Gary Miller. Concord Young Professionals Network (CYPN) Chair, Connor Spern, had a similar message to share. Connor explained that the Chamber and CYPN fostered her career in the nonprofit sector.
