Strait Area Chamber of Commerce officials ready for expansion

Officials with the Strait Area Chamber of Commerce say they are excited to be opening a new satellite office in Inverness.

Adam Rodgers, chamber president, says membership has more than doubled over the past year, from 25 to 70 members.

Rodgers tells The Hawk development is increasing in Inverness and surrounding communities, partly due to the Cabot Links golf course.

"We think this is a great news story for the area," he says. "It really reflects the strengthening of the business community in that region as well."

Rodgers says chamber officials want to better serve their members who are outside the Strait Area.

"With a reach into Inverness, Cheticamp, and even north of there." he says. "We thought that was too great of a distance for our members to travel if they want to have face-to-face contact with us."

Rodgers says chamber officials are still working out the details, but they hope to have the Inverness satellite office open by the end of September.
