Valued Chamber Member,
Congratulations! You are a part of the first membership group for the newly formed Stateline Chamber of Commerce. We received word from the State of IL that our Articles of Consolidation have been filed, making the merger official as of September 10th 2015.
This is a moment to celebrate. For as far back as nearly 20 years ago, different groups have attempted to bring our 2 great Chambers together, and we are the ones that accomplished that goal. We share in this accomplishment a sense of pride for our members, our region, our leadership, and our bright future.
For some time now your board of directors have been meeting as a whole and through various committees. Our goal is to have our 2 Chambers consolidated into one office, both physically and operationally, before the end of the year. This is taking a lot of planning, coordination, and physical work, but we are confident that we are on track to make this a reality. During this transition phase, we are still one chamber of commerce, but until we have all of our operational systems integrated, will continue to operate independently so there is no loss of services and value to our members.
As some point soon the Rockton office will be closed and all of its processes moved to the Roscoe location. We will notify everyone when this happens.
You can expect to hear from us along the way, and should anticipate a full detailed announcement and launch of the new Stateline Chamber as the New Year arrives. In the meantime, please be patient with us as we take our two organizations and integrate them into a new single operation.
