As heard on The Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM WHOW and 95.9 WEZC Wednesday evening, the Clinton Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Business Expo boasted 59 businesses, clubs, and organizations which is up from last year's event.
According to Director of the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, Marian Brisard, the Business Expo is a great opportunity to promote local businesses and the community. It's also a great place to network.
While the Business Expo is about introducing businesses to the community, it is also a fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce.
