The Chamber keeps me well informed on what is going on in the community. Getting regular updates on upcoming events allows me to stay in touch with businesses and voters. The Chamber does a great job bringing people together, fostering a network for businesses, and providing fun events. I have also greatly appreciated the “Leadership Sherman” Program. Several of the young lawyers in the District Attorney’s Office have gone through this program, which teaches them leadership skills, familiarizes them with their community, and connects them with other young leaders in town.
I would just like to say that since Rapid Refill Ink became a member a few years ago, that Sherman and Texomaland represent at least 35% of our business even though our store is in McKinney. I appreciate how welcomed I feel at the breakfast meetings and I nearly always come away with another new customer from Sherman.
Being a part of the Sherman Chamber of Commerce has not only helped me grow my business, but also develop relationships that are mutually beneficial even outside the workplace. By regularly attending the weekly morning meetings, now called “Plug In Texoma,” I have gotten to know many local business owners. Even being a larger company, I am able to use those business owners for our goods and services and have been able to refer other people to them with the confidence that they will do an excellent job. Being a part of the other chamber events and a Chamber Ambassador just gives me that extra “umph” to integrate myself with the even larger companies. Many people will even say that when they think of Heritage Park Surgical Hospital, they think of me – and that’s all thanks to the Chamber!
