The Oak Park-River Forest Chamber of Commerce launched a new website last week. And while it is a fine and useful site, it is more notably a sign that our previously dormant Chamber is quickly coming back to life. There are many roles for a vital local chamber to play — educational resource for small businesses, convener of discussions, organizer of small business associations, advocate for business to local government.
Our villages need an active and activist Chamber of Commerce. So far we're impressed by the progress.
