The public is invited to attend the ribbon cutting for the new O'Fallon Chamber of Commerce Office on Friday afternoon.
The ceremony begins at 3:30 p.m. and continues with an open house from 4-8 p.m. Drinks and appetizers will be served.
Growth inspired the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors to form a search committee for a permanent location for the chamber to expand into and accommodate the needs of their more than 500 members. The search and building committee started looking into new office space for the chamber in late 2011 and after a lot of research found a location at 2145 Bryan Valley Commercial Drive which the Chamber officially closed on Friday, Aug. 3, 2012.
Sara Henderson, communications director for the chamber, said the new space includes ample parking, is handicap accessible, contains a larger board room and more office space for meetings.
Local general contractor and longtime O’Fallon Chamber member, Schneider Construction Services built out the existing building.
