In addition to selfies, photo bombs can be lots of fun as they are extremely shareable content.

It offers very strong networking tools and opportunities. Here are several things you probably didn’t know about how you can improve your business networking with chamber membership. Read more

    Celebrating our involvement in the America's Best Communities Contest. We are just days away from the announcement of the Semi-Finalists that will move on to the next phase of the ABC contest. On Wednesday, January 13th, we will learn if we become a Semi-Finalist and continue in the competition. The Connected Community Initiative consists of 4 separate initiatives that come together to address work force needs in our community. The Initiatives are: Sustainable Leadership - finding ways to enhance our current leadership programs and addressing the need for involvement by those of all ages; Technology and Infrastructure - a partnership of the schools and the city to address the growing technology needs and to identify infrastructure needs in our community; Downtown & Riverfront Initiative - the purpose is to create a riverfront corridor that will connect the downtown to the current riverfront development project; and the Community Platform - a community website that will be the one resource for everything Troy, Ohio. The Community Platform will include a comprehensive community calendar.
