The Chamber expects to open its newest office by the end of July, 2013. Chamber President Coco Johnston stated, “We look forward to closer collaboration with the dozen and more other chambers, academic, government and business-promotion organizations at the NEC. This is truly a one-stop business center. I know our members and partners will reap tremendous benefits by our move into the NEC.”
