The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce recently held their annual gala to celebrate what its head says is all of the great things being done around the community and to also celebrate all of the volunteers they have. Chris Hembrough, President and CEO¬† says the Chamber has an “Ambassadors Committee” of 25 people which was formed to be a membership committee to keep members informed, recruit new members, help retain membership to help them decide whether or not it’s their strategy to be a member.

Hembrough said the Chamber has many goals that they’re going to continue to work on this year. They include generating more land for local businesses, getting residental housing in the downtown area, and working with the Mid Illinois Medical District on redisigning their website.
