Huntingburg and Ferdinand Chambers Host Public Meetings on Potential Merger Between Two Groups

From Local Sources 

HUNTINGBURG -- The Huntingburg and Ferdinand Chambers of Commerce is asking current chamber members, prospective members, businesses and public to participate in a focus group to help determine the desire for a proposed merger between the two chambers. It is only necessary to attend one session and participants can pick the session date and location most convenient for them. 

Sessions are expected to last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. 

Session 1: Tuesday, May 21 st at 8am in the Huntingburg Chamber Office. The Chamber office is located on the 2 nd Floor of Old National Bank at 327 E. 4 th St. Huntingburg. 

Session 2: Tuesday, May 28 th at 6:30pm at Vincennes University Jasper - CTIM building room 230. This session will be geared towards the local Merchant Associations, but anyone is welcome to attend. 

Session 3: Wednesday, May 29 th at 8am in the Ferdinand Library Community Room at 112 W. 16 th St. Ferdinand. 

We are asking that participants kindly RSVP to [email protected] and state which session they will be attending. 

The two Chambers announced late last year their intent to explore a merger. As part of the exploratory process they have completed an online survey and have spent several months talking and listening to chamber members. 

The focus groups will be the last step in the exploratory process. All the information obtained during the last few months will be reviewed by both boards of directors before a final decision is made in mid-June.
