Laura Galbraith: Demand for development resources high


Folks around Michigan are taking notice. Gov. Rick Snyder publicly acknowledged the Chamber with a proclamation commending the organization’s economic development efforts. Chamber programs were highlighted at a meeting of the Michigan Economic Development Authority board as a model.

Such accolades are nice. But the real benefits extend throughout the community in the form of more local job opportunities, increased tax base and expanded economic activity. To that end, the Chamber and its partners will continue to put their money and effort where their mouth is – and hopefully convince others that it’s time to get on board.

Laura Galbraith is the senior vice president of finance and administration at the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce. Contact her by email at
