Wilmington Chamber 2015 Year in Review

It's been another busy year of advocacy and economic development initiatives at the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce.


Increasing Personal Power for Women

Often women have to walk to fine line between being effective and being perceived as a witch. At the Chamber Women's Professional Development Luncheon, keynote speaker Denise Ryan of Firestar Speaking will tell you how to stay on the right side of the line!
