Hi, I’m Michelle West, founder and president of Chamber Speak. I created Chamber Speak in 2012 to provide affordable marketing solutions for chambers of commerce.
As the former vice president of communications for the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, I understand the challenges that chambers face in communicating value and I also understand that time, resources and budget are often in short supply.
That’s why I have created affordable, customizable marketing solutions to help you reach your members and prospects in ways that you might not be able to do on your own. We strive to create solutions that will work for chambers of all sizes and all budgets.
Thank you for taking time to visit our site and thank you for everything you do to help business grow in your community.
If you have any questions or would like more information on how Chamber Speak can help you and your organization, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
