  • Chamber Connectors Testimonial

  •  "I love that I get to go out and see new businesses or celebrate anniversaries, new management, etc. But my favorite part is doing one-on-one connections so business members know the Chamber is there for them!"  Curt Vodehnal"I love that I get to go out and see new businesses or celebrate anniversaries, new management, etc. But my favorite part is doing one-on-one connections so business members know the Chamber is there for them!"

  • "Joining Connectors when I first moved to Grand Island has turned out to be one of the best things I could have done. I have met many people and learned about so many businesses that I would never have known existed if I had not gone to a ribbon cutting or on a connector visit."

    Janna KuklisNebraska State Fair

  • "As a Connector, I most enjoy visiting different businesses. I find Grand Island to be very progressive and we all see new businesses opening up or expanding on steady pace. Participating in ribbon cuttings gives me a chance to learn about new businesses and to welcome the business owners and operators to the Grand Island community. During the annual decal blast, I enjoy spending an afternoon touching base with Chamber Business Partners. I prefer to choose a new area each time, so that I can explore unique businesses and storefronts. Chamber Partners are very complimentary about our decal visits and they usually share great feedback about the Grand Island Community. Being a Connector helps me to know about opportunities for our State Fair Partners who are in Grand Island seasonally. It is important that our Fair Team is able to offer ideas or recommendations for local suppliers and providers to our Partners and being a Chamber Connector certainly helps me to see and to know what is going on around town."
