Our Branch's first working encounter with the Chamber was when it partnered with us and others to do a job fair at the Wicomico Civic Center.The Job Fair was a success.
Thereafter, WCNAACP was kept informed of Chamber updates and events. Also, visitors have contacted the Chamber to get information on the local NAACP Branch.
In addition, the Chamber provided visibility to WCNAACP when it permitted us to have an informational booth annually at the Salisbury Festival, free of charge.
Lastly, by giving our Branch's leadership the opportunity to serve as ex-officio members (non-profit status) of the Chamber, it provides us with first hand knowledge on economic issues. By providing non-profit organizations ex-officio (non-voting status) membership on the Board, it includes organizations that can not afford membership the opportunity of inclusion. We commend the Chamber for that.
