The Valpo Chamber is one of the best non-profits in Northwest Indiana. Its membership and programming has helped grow the community in ways not imaginable. As a former local business owner, I was able to serve as an Ambassador to the organization as I traveled around to ribbon cutting, happy hours and the like. In 2013, I was admitted to their leadership program which is actually more focused on the non-profit community instead of business. The chamber seeks to develop people from a holistic perspective and help them get engaged in other aspects of the community. We were able to hear from CEO’s program managers and others that are doing the things needs to help people from all walks of life be success regardless of where they started from.
